Meeting Description:

Workshop on Morphology and Formal Grammar.
Paris, France
July 8, 2010.

The aims of the workshop are to provide a forum for formal work in morphology
and its interfaces to syntax and semantics, and to encourage links between more
empirically-oriented morphologists and linguists working in formal models of

We believe that such collaborations can have important, positive consequences.
Morphologists can benefit from the added descriptive precision that comes with
formal analysis. And in light of challenges brought to light through the careful
study of a wider range of morphological phenomena, existing formal approaches
can be extended, adapted, or perhaps even radically redesigned, to achieve a
more adequate, complete model of grammar.

The workshop is co-located with the HPSG 2010 Conference. See the Call for
Papers for details.

First Call for Papers

Invited Speaker: Gregory T. Stump (University of Kentucky)

Topics of interest include:
- Analyses of phenomena at the interface between morphology and other linguistic
dimensions (syntax, semantics, phonology).
- Discussions of phenomena that present a challenge to standard assumptions
about the architecture of morphological systems.
- New analytical techniques in morphology and their formal specification.
- Analyses of morphological phenomena cast in formal and/or computational
morphological frameworks, such as (but not limited to) Paradigm Function
Morphology, Network Morphology, or Finite-State Morphology.
- Analyses of morphological phenomena cast in general-purpose formal frameworks,
such as (but not limited to) Lexical Functional Grammar, Head-driven Phrase
Structure Grammar, or Categorial Grammar.
- Critical discussions of the adequacy of existing frameworks with respect to
the treatment of morphology.

The workshop is co-located with the HPSG conference. However, no preference will
be given to papers cast within the framework of HPSG.

Abstracts should be in PDF format and at most 5 pages long. The higher page
limit is intended to encourage detailed presentations of data and formal analyses.

We will use an online submission system. All abstracts should be submitted via:

Please direct any questions to the Program Committee Chair:

All abstracts will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers. Abstracts
should not include the authors' names, and authors are asked to avoid
