Post-workshop tasks (to be completed before 15/04/2013)

After the workshop, the participants will be invited to extend their experimental grammars (for both analysis and generation) for the 13 sentences of the first text of the Corpus UC-B1. The grammar should also address the corpora UC-A1 and UC-A2.


The participants who accomplish the post-workshop tasks before April 15th, 2013, will be invited to sign a contract for the development of the grammar modules for their respective languages. This contract will include:

  1. Lemmatization of all word forms appearing in the corpus (USD0.10 per lemma, up to USD1,000.00 total, i.e., 10,000 lemmas)
  2. The development of a grammar for the analysis of the 1,000 most frequent syntactic structures of the source language, extracted from the corpus (USD2,000.00)
  3. The development of a grammar for the generation of the 1,000 most frequent semantic structures of UNL (USD2,000.00)
  4. The participation in the Advanced Level Grammar Workshop in 2013
