Structuring Discourse in Multilingual Europe (EU ISCH Cost Action)


The Action will facilitate European multilingualism by (1) identifying and creating a portal of such resources within Europe - including annotation tools, search tools, and discourse-annotated corpora; (2) delineating the dimensions and properties of discourse annotation across corpora; (3) organising these properties into a sharable taxonomy; (4) encouraging the use of this taxonomy in subsequent discourse annotation and in cross-lingual search and studies of devices that relate and structure discourse; and (5) promoting use of the portal, its resources and sharable taxonomy.


With partners from across Europe, TextLink will unify numerous but scattered linguistic resources on discourse structure. The action is coordinated by Prof. Liesbeth Degand of the Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium. LIIR contributes to the goal of automated (cross-lingual) discourse search and annotation.
