Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship on the project LEXICAL: Lexical Acquisition across Languages. The project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) in the form of a Consolidator Grant awarded to Anna Korhonen. The aim is to develop a novel computational framework for learning and transferring lexical information across languages without the need for parallel resources. The project will cover a variety of typologically diverse languages and language domains and will demonstrate the usefulness for NLP applications such as machine translation.
