TTNLS: EACL 2014 Type Theory and Natural Language Semantics Workshop

Co-located with EACL 2014, Gothenburg, Sweden

27th of April, 2014



Type theory has been a central area of research in logic, the semantics of
programming languages, and natural language semantics over the past fifty
years.  Recent developments in type theory have been used to reconstruct
the formal foundations of computational semantics (Ranta (1994), Fox and
Lappin (2005), Ginzburg (2012), Retoré (2012), Cooper (2012), Cooper et al.
(2013)). These theories are generally intensional and polymorphic in
character, and they allow for structured, fine-grained encoding of
information across a diverse set of linguistic domains.

The work in this area has opened up new approaches to modeling the
relations between, inter alia, syntax, semantic interpretation, dialogue,
inference, and cognition, from a largely proof theoretic perspective.

The workshop provides a forum for the presentation of leading edge research
in this fast developing subfield of computational linguistics. To the best
of our knowledge it will be the first major conference on this topic hosted
by the ACL.


We invite papers on topics including, but not limited to, the following:

* subtyping
* lexical semantics
* record types
* intensionality
* probabilistic type theory
* type theory and the interface among syntax, semantics, phonology
* type theory and functional programming
* type theory, logic, and inference
