Workshop:

''Regularity and Irregularity in Grammar and Language''
(announcement)
July 25

The workshops associated with HPSG conferences typically address topics that are relevant to any grammatical framework. Contributions to the workshop from other frameworks are as welcome as abstract submissions from the HPSG community!

The relationship between regularity and irregularity in language has
always been a central research theme in linguistic theorizing.
Contemporary grammatical frameworks in the generative tradition are no exception in this regard, with research dating back at least as far as
George Lakoff's 1967 dissertation.

Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar is particularly well-suited to
address such issues, due to its lexicalist orientation and to its
extensive use of types and inheritance hierarchies. Consequently,
HPSG researchers have made significant contributions to the study of
regularity and irregularity in the areas of morphology, syntax and
semantics. To name only a few examples:

Morphology and morphology-syntax interface: Flickinger's dissertation
on lexical rules and the structure of the lexicon (Flickinger 1987);
Nerbonne and Krieger's work on the organization of the lexicon and on
inflectional morphology (Nerbonne and Krieger 1993); Riehemann's
corpus-based study of derivational morphology (Riehemann 1998);
Malouf's constructional approach to English gerunds.

Syntax and syntax-semantics interface: Przepiorkowski's account of
case assigmnment in Polish (Przepiorkowski 1999); Sag's papers on
assignment rules and exceptions in the English auxiliary system (Sag 2001); Ginzburg and Sag's constructional approach to the syntax and semantics of questions (Ginzburg and Sag 2001).

Semantics: research on licensing of special elements, including idioms
(Riehemann 2001, Soehn 2006), n-words and negative polarity items
(Przepiorkowski and Kupsc 1999; Sailer/Richter 1999; De Swart and Sag
2002).
