The open access publisher Language Science Press has just announced a new series, Phraseology and Multiword Expressions (PMWE). This series grew out of the activities of the COST Action Parseme, in which several members of our IEAS group have participated.
The series will publish monographs and edited volumes relating to computational, formal, and/or grammar-theoretical approaches to all types of phraseological units/multiword expressions.
Manfred Sailer gave an invited talk at the workshop “Recent Trends in Figurative Language Research”, Tübingen, December 8&9. The workshop brought together researchers from theoretical linguistics, applied linguistics, psycholinguistics, psychology, first and second language acquisition research, medicine, and computational linguistics.
