Meeting Description:

At each MMM (http://mmm.lingue.unibo.it/), one day is devoted to a particular
theme, whereas the other day is open for contributions that are not linked to
that theme. The theme for MMM8 is:
Morphology and the Architecture of the Grammar

First Call for Papers

Morphology deals with the correlation between the form and meaning of words.
Hence, it plays a central role in theories about the architecture of the
grammars of natural languages, which specify the relationship between the form
and meaning of expressions in a particular language. Basic questions are:
-What are proper criteria for the demarcation of morphological versus syntactic
-Where in the grammar are morphological objects to be accounted for?
-To what extent is the construction of words subject to different principles and
constraints than the construction of phrases?
-In which ways do morphology, phonology, and syntax interact?
-Should inflection and word formation be dealt with in different parts of the
grammar, or cannot they be separated?
-What do morphological phenomena tell us about the nature of linguistic
generalizations (rules, schemas, constructions, etc.), and their place in the
description of the competence of language users?

Submission of Abstracts:
Authors who wish to contribute to the discussion of this theme are invited to
submit abstracts in which language data are discussed that provide clear
evidence in favour of a particular claim on one of the subtopics mentioned

Abstracts should not exceed 1 page (bibliography excluded) and should be sent
electronically in word and pdf format to scaliselingue.unibo.it. They must also
be anonymous. Name(s) of authors, e-mail address(es) and affiliation(s) should
be included in a separate document.

Times New Roman, 12 point, Arial Unicode MS for phonetic symbols.
Please specify in your e-mail subject title whether your submission relates to
the special theme (i.e. MMM8 abstract submission - M&D). Otherwise, please
simply type in "MMM8 abstract submission". Presentations will be restricted to
30 minutes.

Submission deadline: 28 February 2011
