Shared Task at KONVENS 2021

Timm Lichte
Together with Rafael Ehren, Kuba Waszczuk and Laura Kallmeyer, I’m currently organizing a shared task at KONVENS 2021 that aims at disambiguating literal and idiomatic occurrence of German verbal multi-word expressions, so-called verbal idioms (VIDs), in running text. An example would be the VID Das Konzert fiel ins Wasser (‘The concert was canceled’) as opposed to literal counterparts such as Das Handy fiel ins Wasser (‘The mobile phone fell into the water’).
