Linguistic Sub-field: Phonology, Morphology

Meeting Description:

The theme of this workshop is the role of the ''word'' in phonology
and morphology from the perspective of both theory and typology.
Absracts are invited on papers dealing with any aspects of the theory
or typology of the word, including diagnostics for phonological and
grammatical words (and conflicts within these), the relationship
between phonological and grammatical words, phonological processes
bounded by the word, the relevance of the word for prosodic morphology
and tone, and other phenomena that make reference to phonological and
grammatical words. 

The Program & Schedule for the Workshop on Word Domains: Theory &
Typology, to be held 7-8 April 2004, at the University of Leipzig, is
now available. For more information on abstracts and venue, please
