Phraseology and Multiword Expressions (PMWE) is a book series at Language Science Press, a born-digital scholar-led open access publisher in linguistics.

The se­ries pub­lishes high qual­i­ty books about conventionalized, idiosyncratic combinations of words. Within the field of phraseology such word combinations are sometimes called phrasemes, while the computational linguistics community uses the term multiword expressions for them. Various subtypes of such word combinations are of interest, such as multiword compounds, multiword terms, multiword named entities, light verb constructions, phrasal verbs, idioms, collocations, formulaic speech, proverbs, etc.

The series is open to different approaches so as to create a forum for an interdisciplinary and cross-framework exchange of research results, including but not limited to the following subdisciplines:

  • Computational linguistics and natural language processing

  • Computer science

  • Corpus linguistics

  • Lexicography

  • Psycholinguistics

  • Theoretical linguistics

We welcome volume proposals addressing all topics related to theoretical, computational, and empirical approaches to phraseology including:

  • Linguistic properties and typologies of multiword expressions, especially in multilingual frameworks

  • Electronic lexical resources including multiword expressions

  • Formal grammatical description of multiword expressions

  • Parsing technologies including multiword expressions

  • Identification and annotation of multiword expressions in corpora and treebanks

  • Multiword expressions in machine translation and other multilingual applications

All contributions are welcome in English.

To submit a volume proposal, please follow the guidelines at the series home page:
