In this paper, we evaluate PYBOSSA, an open-source crowdsourcing framework, by performing case studies on blends, neologisms and language variation. We describe the procedural aspects of crowdsourcing, such as working with a crowdsourcing platform and reaching the desired audience. Furthermore, we analyze the results, and show that crowdsourcing can shed new light on how language is used by speakers. Full text: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-2390/PaperB3.pdf
Presentation on cases to use PYBOSSA for language crowdsourcing, illustrated by a number of case studies of applying PYBOSSA for Dutch by the Dutch Language Institute.
In this presentation, we show how the PYBOSSA crowdsourcing platform can be used for collection of linguistic knowledge about the Dutch language. As a pilot study, we ask speakers of Dutch to recognize and analyze blends, a certain type of compound word.
