Hi all,

Here is an update on the work that we have been doing with respect to 
lexical semantic change.

Our paper on Temporal Referencing for Robust Modeling of Lexical 
Semantic Change got accepted to ACL2019, and a preprint is now available 
at https://arxiv.org/abs/1906.01688. You can read about how our paper 
came about here: https://languagechange.org/post/the-two-week-paper/

The 1st International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical 
Language Change (LChange'19) is progressing nicely. We had over 50 
papers submitted on a range of different, and exciting topics. After an 
enormous effort from our reviewers and authors, we are now done with the 
proceedings. A first schedule will appear soon here: 
https://languagechange.org/events/2019-acl-lcworkshop/ We are looking 
forward to meeting you all there!

We are also contributing to a SemEval challenge on Unsupervised Lexical 
Semantic Change Detection, where Swedish alongside of English, German 
and Latin are currently being annotated as one of the target languages. 
Stay tuned on more information soon! http://languagechange.org/semeval

Kind regards,
