CFP: 2nd International Workshop on Computational Approaches to Historical
Language Change 2021 (LChange 2021)

Webpage: https://languagechange.org/events/2021-acl-lchange/

Human language changes over time, driven by the dual needs of adapting to
ongoing sociocultural and technological development in the world and
facilitating efficient communication. In particular, novel words are
coined or borrowed from other languages, while obsolete words slide into
obscurity. Similarly, words may acquire novel meanings or lose existing
meanings. This workshop explores these phenomena by bringing to bear
state-of-the-art computational methodologies, theories and digital text
resources on exploring the time-varying nature of human language.

The workshop builds upon its first iteration in 2019, where we received
over 50 submissions and had over 65 attendees. Just like the first one,
the second LChange workshop will be co-located with ACL 2021, and, pending
on the situation, a hybrid event with possible online participation.
