A workshop to be conducted in conjunction with the conference on The
Syntax of Semitic Languages and its interfaces, Department of Linguistics, 
University of Southern California

Date: May 7, 2001
		

Invited Speakers: Outi Bat-El
 Jean Lowenstamm 
 Jean-Francois Prunet

What is the grammatical status of Semitic consonantal roots?
Are they psychologically real? Are they listed separately in the
lexicon? Is such a listing accompanied with distinct
orphological, phonological, or syntactic information?

What is the grammatical status of Semitic vocalic templates?
Are they morphologically well-defined, or are they only
subject to phonological restrictions? Are they sytactically
represented? Are they psychologically real?
		
In the past few years, from the perspectives of both recent
syntactic and phonological theories, many of these issues have
acquired new theoretical significance. It is for this 
reason that the Department of Linguistics at the University of Southern
California, in conjunction with its conference on The Syntax
of Semitic Languages and its Interfaces, will be hosting a
workshop devoted o this topic.

Abstracts are invited for 30 or 40 minute talks (plus 15 minute
discussion), touching upon any aspect of the root/template
issue, including, but not limited to, its syntactic, its
phonological, its morpholgical, and its psycholinguistic 
ramifications.
