Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Meeting URL: http://www.indiana.edu/~mrphfest/
Meeting Description: As linguists are quite aware, language can exist without significant morphological structure. In fact, morphological structure typically contributes to the overall complexity of a language. This symposium will address issues of morphological complexity from four different perspectives: cognitive computation, lexical processing, diversity and evolution, and the theory of grammar.

Invited speakers will each provide a daily lecture over the course of four days (Monday-Thursday) in each of these areas. The fifth day (Friday) will be devoted to poster presentations in each of the four areas, followed by focus group discussion for each area.
