Meeting Description:

Since Aronoff (1994), the term 'morphome' has been widely used to denote a
unit of linguistic representation known only to the morphology. Candidates for
morphomic status include inflectional class features, as well as
derivational and inflectional bases ('stems') which do not submit to a
consistent semantic or syntactic characterization.

This workshop aims to bring together scholars who share an interest in the
concept of the morphome, but who may hold widely divergent views as to
whether morphomes exist, what they may be, and how to account for
morphological patterns claimed to require the postulation of morphomes. Different
theoretical and empirical views on the morphome are therefore most welcome.
