Stefanie Dipper

Stefanie Dipper is a professor of Computational Linguistics at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. She studied in Tübingen and did her PhD in Stuttgart on implementing a German grammar in the formalism of LFG. She was also part of several projects dealing with different aspects of creating and using corpora. Recently, she has been working on automatic analysis of historical language data (medieval German) and, more recently, on data produced by primary-school children, focusing on orthographic-graphematic properties.

Anke Lüdeling

Anke Lüdeling is a professor for corpus linguistics and morphology at the Institute for German Language and Linguistics at Humboldt University, Berlin. She studied linguistics and computer science in Hamburg, wrote her dissertation on a grammatical topic (particle verbs) in Tübingen, and worked in several research projects in Stuttgart and Osnabrück before moving to Berlin. She has worked on many topics – in recent years she became interested in the analysis of L2 acquisition processes through the study of written and spoken learner data as well as in the analysis of (diachronic) register development. In her work, she always tries to use a theoretical model to understand the data and combines qualitative and quantitative analyses. She has been involved in building and annotating several corpora (written and spoken learner German, a diachronic corpus of herbal texts, a corpus of non-standard varieties, etc.). She has worked on methodological questions of annotating ‘non-standard’ varieties.

Amir Zeldes

Amir Zeldes is a computational linguist specializing in corpus linguistics. He studied Cognitive Science, Computational and General Linguistics in Jerusalem, Potsdam and Berlin before receiving his doctorate from Humboldt University in Berlin. He is currently assistant professor of Computational Linguistics at Georgetown University. His main area of interest is the syntax-semantics interface, where meaning and knowledge about the world are mapped onto lexical choice and syntactic structure in language-specific ways. He is also involved in the development of tools for corpus search, annotation and visualization, and has worked on the development of standards for the representation of textual data in Linguistics and the Digital Humanities.
