scope of morphological theory.

Morphology of the World's Languages

Date and Venue: June 11-13 2009, University of Leipzig

The last years have seen substantial advances in the typological study and the
formal modeling of natural language morphology. However, progress in the
theoretical analysis of morphological systems highlights a basic empirical
problem: We know too little about the morphology of too few languages and
language families.

This conference in the tradition of Syntax of the World's Languages seeks to
bring together researchers working on the documentation or analysis of
morphological data from less widely studied languages to broaden the empirical
scope of morphological theory. Contributions are expected to be based either on
new data, new generalizations, or new approaches to analysis. All major
theoretical frameworks are equally welcome, as is work done in analytical
frameworks developed in typology or field linguistics.

Relevant topics include, but are not restricted to:

The Structure of Syncretism
Productivity in Derivation and Compounding
Nonconcatenative and Prosodic Morphology
Systematic and Idiosyncratic Aspects of Allomorphy
Affix Order
Boundaries of Morphology to Phonology and Syntax

Invited Speakers:

Jonathan Bobaljik (University of Connecticut)
Greville Corbett (University of Surrey)
Alice Harris (Stony Brook University)
Larry Hyman (University of Berkeley)
Martin Haspelmath (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology)
Andrew Nevins (Harvard University)
Andrew Spencer (University of Sussex)
Dieter Wunderlich (Center for General Linguistics, Berlin)

The conference will be sponsored by the Research Group on Grammar and Processing
of Verbal Arguments and the Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence. The fifth
meeting of the network which takes place immediately after the conference (June
14) is also open to the public.

Organization:

Balthasar Bickel
