Logic and Engineering of Natural Language Semantics 12 (LENLS 12)

LENLS is an annual international workshop on formal syntax, semantics and pragmatics. It will be held as one of the workshops of the 7th JSAI International Symposia on AI (isAI2015) (https://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/isai/) sponsored by the Japan Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI) (http://www.ai-gakkai.or.jp/en).

The first day of LENLS will include a half-day workshop on politeness and honorification with talks by Nicholas Asher, Daisuke Bekki and Eric McCready. These talks will consider the lexical semantics of honorifics, syntactic and semantic aspects of composition with honorifics, and strategic aspects of politeness and formality. The workshop is open to the public and is funded by JSPS Kiban C Grant #25370441.
