Send one electronic copy in an email entitled 'PPRIconf_oneinitialsurname' e.g. 'PPRIconf_gsmith' , in an attachment also entitled 'PPRI_oneinitialsurname' to pamartinull.es

- Poster

NOTES
- Individual papers will have 30 minutes: 20 for the presentation, 10 for questions
- Colloquia proposers should plan their half day to include four slots, in step with the individual paper slots. If they have a larger number of papers these should be shorter so as to fit more than one into a single slot.

Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories; Neurolinguistics; Psycholinguistics

Call Deadline: 31-Jul-2006

Meeting Description:

The purpose of the workshop is to present and discuss evidence for minimal structure from current psycho- and neurolinguistic research. The workshop will take place as part of the Annual Conference of the German Linguistics Society (DGfS): http://www.dgfs.de/cgi-bin/dgfs.pl/tagung

Call for Workshop: Experimental evidence for minimal structure

In the past decade, the notion of minimality has received a lot of attention in various linguistic domains. For instance, minimal structure plays a prominent role in syntactic theory where a crucial assumption is that phrase structure building processes follow principles of minimality. In analogy, recent morphological approaches have proposed that inflectional systems can be captured by a minimal set of morphosyntactic categories and features. In phonology, but also in other linguistic domains, optimality-theoretic analyses have been adopted to account for the occurrence of the optimal (unmarked) surface form.

It has further been proposed that principles of minimal structure are reflected in language processing and our workshop therefore aims at linking theoretical claims with experimental findings. We invite presentations from all linguistic domains (including phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics) that provide psycho- and neurolinguistic evidence for the validity of minimal structures. In this respect, we also invite presentations that address conflict resolution strategies that are required in cases where minimal structures from two (or more) domains clash and where as a result, the output has to violate the minimality priniciple of one of the subdomains.

Presentations will be 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.
