Meeting Description: DGfS Workshop on Usage-Based Approaches to Morphology
35th Annual Meeting of the German Society for Linguistics (DGfS)
Potsdam University, 13-15 March 2013

In the past years usage-based models have made substantial contributions to our understanding of the inner workings of grammar and the mental lexicon, especially as they apply to syntax and argument structure (e.g. Goldberg 2006). More recently, the same theoretical mechanisms have been applied specifically to the study of morphology (cf. Booij 2010), shedding new light on familiar problems and offering unified accounts of seemingly disparate phenomena which open up new research areas and questions about learnability, lexicalization, the nature of productive morphology and the structure of the lexicon. This working group will focus on usage-based accounts of morphological phenomena, both synchronic and diachronic, using a wide range of methodologies focusing on empirical evidence such as corpus studies, psycholinguistic experiments, eye tracking and reading studies, grammaticality judgment tasks and more.
