Protected: Ravnur: the Faroese Speech Recognizer – Annika Simonsen

Annika Simonsen is ambitiously contributing to the establishment of the lexicographic landscape in the Faroese language: Via the Ravnur Project she intends to push language technology, especially speech recognition in Faroese, further.

New out now: NAISC 1.0

Protected: Enhancing the representation of specialized phraseology in eLexicography – Melania Cabezas García

Melania Cabezas García’s interest in languages and intercultural communication led her to defend her PhD thesis ‘on the study and representation of multiword terms in specialized language’. Consequently, this brought her to the point where she started EcoLexicon, a terminological knowledge base developed in her research group at the University of Granada. Thus, she decided to apply for a #travelgrant to visit the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna in order to enrich her data base and exchange knowledge with experts in the field.

To learn how to incorporate these features into her dictionary, Jelena Parizoska applied for a #travelgrant to visit the Jožef Stefan Institute in Slovenia and profit from the expertise of the Institute’s experts.
