The arText team participates in the 75th number of the Journal of Language and Law with two publications. The first one is the article “Una clasificación actualizada de los géneros textuales de la Administración pública española” (Sara Pistola and Susana Viñuales). It can be consulted here. The second is a review by Cristina Carretero of the book “El discurso del ámbito de la Administración: una perspectiva lingüística”, published by Iria da Cunha in 2020 (Editorial Comares). The review is entitled “El proceso comunicativo entre la Administración y la ciudadanía: especial perspectiva del ciudadano como emisor del mensaje” and can be consulted here.
In the 169th number of the boletín Punto y Coma of the European Union, a review by Blanca Collazos (European Commission) on ” El discurso del ámbito de la Administración: una perspectiva lingüística” (Iria da Cunha, 2020, Editorial Comares) has been published (p. 41-45). The review is available here.
The article entitled “Una herramienta TIC para la redacción del Trabajo de Fin de Grado (TFG)” has been published in the last issue of the journal ELUA: Estudios de Lingüística. Universidad de Alicante. This journal has the “Sello de calidad revistas científicas españolas de la FECYT“.
The goal of the article is to explain that a new functionality has been enabled in the arText system to help university students in the writing of the Final Degree Project (TFG), in its research work modality, for any field of knowledge.
It is possible to access this functionality from the main page of the arText system by selecting the textual genre “Trabajo de fin de grado (TFG)” within the section “Textos académicos de cualquier ámbito”.
Our team would thank you for the dissemination of this functionality, which is totally free of charge. We are sure that it will be very useful for students who must elaborate their TFG at any Spanish university and in any field of knowledge. In addition, we find it especially useful in this difficult time that we are living, in which making electronic resources available to students is more necessary than ever, in the framework of online learning.

For the implementation of this new arText functionality, the materials from the following book on the TFG and the TFM have been used, currently recommended in many Spanish universities:

The article entitled “A technological application that helps citizens write texts to the Public Administration” has been published today in the journal Linguamática. The aim of the article is to explain the specific application of the arText system that helps to write textual genres addressed to the Administration, specifically an allegation, a cover letter, a letter of complaint, a claim and an application. We encourage you to read the article and use arText!

From October 27th to 28th, 2017, the International ESP Conference on Convergence of ESP with Other Disciplines took place at Conference Centre at Liverpool Hope University (UK).

The title of the talk was “Revisiting tourism text genres presenting writing difficulties to students: designing materials through a semi-automatic corpus”.
Today we gave a talk about the arText project at the 21st Conference on Language for Specific Purposes 2017 (LSP 2017), held at the NHH Norwegian School of Economics in Bergen (Norway). The title of the talk was “Textual genres presenting writing difficulties in the field of tourism: a semiautomatic corpus-based linguistic analysis”.
Today we have presented the arText system in the Software Demonstrations in the 15th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2017), at the Palacio de Congresos in Valencia.
The paper where the system is described has been already published in the conference proceedings.
The paper “The arText prototype: An automatic system for writing specialized texts” has been accepted for presentation and publication in the Demonstration Session of the 15th Conference of the European Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (EACL 2017), which will take place in Valencia from 3 to 7 April, 2017. In brief we will inform you about the date and time of the arText prototype demonstration within the framework of this conference.
The XV Simposi de la Red Iberoamericana de Terminologia (RITerm 2016) was carried out at Universitat de São Paulo (Brasil) from 18 to 21 October 2016.
