The ProduSemy project is funded by the European Research Council in the form of an ERC Consolidator Grant from January 2023 until December 2027. The project focuses on evolutionary, typological, and cognitive aspects of word formation and word families, using a computer-assisted framework.
The following is an official project summary from the EU research results page:
Words which share a common origin within and across different languages are called word families. Through dynamics of language use, these families interact and evolve, a fact that remains largely ignored in the language sciences. The EU-funded ProduSemy project will create computer models to standardise word family data across languages. The models will be applied to data from historical, typological, and cognitive linguistics and help to learn more about the numerous ways in which word families are composed and structured in these disciplines. In this way, the project will contribute to the integration of methods and data in linguistics, cognitive science and psychology.
