Research with COW

Here is a list of the peer-reviewed publications where COW data were used. If you have published results derived from COW data, please let us know. It is very important for the future of COW that we learn about published results as early as possible. In order to correct an entry, please write us an email.

Since in Computational Linguistics, conferences with full-paper submissions have extremely high standards, we list corresponding proceedings papers here. A list of talks and other not strictly peer-reviewed publications will be made available soon.

Note: A BibTeX file will be made available soon.
