          Special Issue of Journal of Computational Linguistics
          and Chinese Language Processing

                  "Word Formation and Chinese Language Processing"

          Guest Editor: Richard Sproat, AT&T Labs -- Research

    Contributions are invited for a special issue of the Journal of
    Computational Linguistics and Chinese Processing on the topic of word
    formation and Chinese Language processing. Areas of interest include,
    but are not limited to:

              - Word formation in models of Chinese word segmentation and
                named entity extraction. Areas of interest include automatic
                detection of:

                        - morphologically productive constructions such as
                        - abbreviations (suoxie)
                        - personal names
                        - proper names of individuals, companies
                        - foreign words in transliteration.
                        - morphologically-based variation among human
                          segmenters and its relevance for Chinese segmentation

              - Computational or statistical work that lends insights on
                linguistic questions, such as morphological productivity or the
                formation of abbreviations.

              - Computational perspectives on the historical development of
                morphological complexity in Chinese.

    The tentative plan is to publish this special issue as volume 8, issue
    2, August 2003.
