Workshop on

 T H E W O R D I N P H O N O L O G Y

 at the 22nd Annual Meeting of the German Society of Linguistics
 Marburg, Germany
 March 1-3, 2000

 - S E C O N D C A L L F O R P A P E R S -

The theme of the next meeting of the German Society of Linguistics (DGfS)
will be "The Word". The meeting consists of several simultaneous
workshops, including the workshop on "The Word in Phonology" organized by
Antony D. Green and Ursula Kleinhenz. In general, speakers at the DGfS are
expected to present a paper in only one workshop. Unfortunately there will
be no possibility to refund speakers' travel expenses this year.

For some time the word has been one of the central issues of phonology, and
many important studies on the status of the word in phonology have
appeared. Nevertheless many questions remain open, which this workshop
aims to address. Submissions are invited that deal with the status and
typology of the word in phonology, in particular:

1. the difference between the morphological word and the phonological word
2. the relationship between the phonological word and the other
constituents of the prosodic hierarchy (phonological phrase, foot, syllable)
3. the criteria that justify these constituents (e.g. stress,
Syllabification, phonotactic well-formedness conditions)
4. which properties of phonological words are universal and which are
5. effects traditionally attributed to lexical and postlexical rules
(e.g. resyllabification across word boundaries). An important issue is how
these data can be analyzed in a constraint-based framework.

Those interested are asked to snail-mail, e-mail or fax a one-page
abstract, indicating the author's name, affiliation, and postal and e-mail
addresses, to Antony D. Green or Ursula Kleinhenz at:

 Zentrum fuer Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft
 Jaegerstr. 10/11
 10117 Berlin

 FAX: +49-30-20-192-402
