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. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The Surrey Morphology Group will be holding a one-day workshop on computational approaches to morphological complexity, hosted by Paris-Sorbonne University, on Friday, February 22, 2013.

Theme of the Workshop:

Inflection often (or even typically) displays formal patterns which cannot be readily derived from the syntactic and semantic categories which it realizes. Phenomena such as inflectional classes, syncretism, defectiveness and deponency manifest what appear to be a purely morphological element in the composition of words and paradigms. Computational treatment of these questions has proved particularly insightful, yielding some of the most interesting contemporary research on morphology. This workshop is devoted to exploring some of the latest trends.

Invited Speakers:

Roger Evans (Brighton)
Olivier Bonami (Paris)
