Proceedings of the Second Colloquium on Lesser Used Languages and
Computer Linguistics

The publication presents the contributions to the Colloquium on Lesser
Used Languages and Computer Linguistics II (LULCL II) held at the
European Academy of Bolzano-Bozen (EURAC) on the 13th and 14th of
November 2008.

LULCL II extended the scope of the first conference to include - in
addition to research on lesser-used languages - research initiatives on
language varieties, sign languages, learner language and any type
of spoken language. Under the motto "Combining efforts to foster
computational support of minority languages",
the second LULCL colloquium put special focus on bringing together these
research communities in order to
combine best practices, approaches and techniques, and to add value to
individual initiatives. The articles present general challenges and a
wide variety of projects and initiatives on different aspects of
applying and making use of language technologies in the context of
lesser-used and lesser-resourced languages.
