Meeting Description:

A full description of our knowledge of language must include reference to
several different components, each with its own particular properties. These
components must interact with each other, and with a lexicon, which we may think
of as a system of stored associations between pieces of information pertaining
to many of the above components. In recent years, the study of the interaction
between these different levels of linguistic knowledge has attracted increasing
interest. The nature and extent of the interaction of different linguistic
modules is a central question to be addressed by a modern theory of linguistic

In 2007, a workshop 'On Linguistic Interfaces' (OnLI) was held at the University
of Ulster, bringing together scholars working on a wide range of
interface-related issues. The workshop has led to a proceedings volume,
'Interfaces in Linguistics: New Research Perspectives', edited by Raffaella
Folli and Christiane Ulbrich (to appear 2010, Oxford University Press).
Following the success of this first meeting, we are pleased to announce that
OnLI II will take place at the University of Ulster (Jordanstown Campus) from
December 2-4 2010. OUP have expressed interest in publishing a further volume of
proceedings from this conference.

Although interface-related material finds a natural home in many linguistics
conferences, OnLI is unique in its focus on the theoretical and empirical issues
arising at the interfaces. OnLI II will host eight invited speakers renowned for
their work on a variety of linguistic interfaces:
