Deutsche Morphologie im Kontrast

Organizers:
Horst Simon (London)
Damaris Nübling (Mainz)
Andrzej Kątny (Gdańsk)
Hans-Olav Enger (Oslo)

Wenn Dinge nur undeutlich zu erkennen sind, ist es oft von Vorteil, wenn man sie
vor einen kontrastierenden Hintergrund stellt. In diesem Sinne wollen wir in
unserer Arbeitsgruppe die Morphologie des Deutschen vor der Folie anderer
Sprachen betrachten, um dadurch ihre Spezifik besser herausarbeiten zu können.
Die Morphologie fungiert - gewissermaßen als Scharnier zwischen Phonologie und
Syntax - als zentrale Komponente der Grammatik. Dementsprechend können
Eigenschaften des morphologischen Systems massive Auswirkungen auf die
Gesamtstruktur einer Sprache haben; nicht selten werden sie sogar als Grundlage
der typologischen Einordnung einer Sprache herangezogen. In unserer Sektion
wollen wir morphologische Charakteristika des Deutschen durch die Kontrastierung
mit anderen Sprachen erhellen. Als mögliche Themenfelder können dabei dienen:

- Grammatische Kategorien: Ausdruck von z.B. Zeitlichkeit (Tempus), Modalität
(Modus), Aktantenrelation (Kasus), Genus oder Definitheit durch flexivische oder
durch andere Mittel?
- Fusionsgrad: syntagmatische Verdichtung von Morphologie, Überlagerung von -
welchen? - Kategorien, Redundanzphänomene/Kongruenz
- Allomorphie: für welche Kategorien werden Allomorphe ausgebildet, wie formal
unterschiedlich sind diese Allomorphe, auf welcher Ebene werden sie gesteuert?
- Flexion: Komplexität, Regularität, Interdependenz, Flexionsklassensysteme,
syntaktische Effekte usw.
- Wortbildung: Typen, Abbildung syntaktischer Relationen usw.

Interessante Fragestellungen können sich sowohl durch den Vergleich genealogisch
und/oder typologisch nah verwandter Sprachen als auch durch die kontrastive
Heranziehung fernerer Sprachen ergeben. Auch diachrone Ansätze (zu
Divergenzentwicklungen nah verwandter Sprachen ebenso wie zu
Konvergenzentwicklungen benachbarter Sprachen) können fruchtbar gemacht werden.

Given that it is still quite a while before the actual meeting, it will at this
stage be sufficient if you indicate your interest with a (very) preliminary
title and send this to:
horst.simonkcl.ac.uk

Workshop languages are English and German.
