- Which of the Greenberg universals on morphology have stood the test
of time, and in which ways do they have to be corrected?

- Which new typological universals might be proposed for the domain of

- How can we explain morphological universals and typological
patterns? (potential factors are language change, grammaticalization,
language processing, semantics, etc.)

- What is the relation between syntactic and morphological typological
generalizations? (for instance, is there a relation between the
position of the head in phrases and that in compounds?)

- Which role should morphology play in language typology in general?
Does the traditional morphological classification of languages
(isolating, agglutinative, synthetic, polysynthetic, etc) still make

- Does the distinction between languages with word-based morphology
versus those with stem-based morphology, and that of word-based versus
morpheme-based morphology makes sense?

- Is there a prefix-suffix asymmetry from a typological point of view,
and if so, what is he explanation for that?

- To which extent are the implicational hierarchies of morphological
typology reflected by patterns of first and second language
acquisition, by patterns of language contact and codeswitching, and by
patterns of language change?
