Meeting Description:

Eighth Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM8)

The conference is open for papers on all topics in the field of Morphology. However, one day will be devoted to the following specific topic:

'Morphology and the architecture of the grammar'

Morphology deals with the correlation between the form and meaning of words. It
thus plays a central role in theories on the architecture of grammars of natural
languages, since it specifies the relationship between form and meaning of
expressions in a particular language. Some basic questions are: What are proper
criteria for the demarcation of morphological versus syntactic objects? Where,
in grammar, are morphological objects to be accounted for? To what extent is the
construction of words subject to different principles and constraints than those
involved in the construction of phrases? In what ways do morphology, phonology
and syntax interact? Should inflection and word formation be dealt with in
different parts of grammar, or are they impossible to separate? 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?

Invited Speakers

Farell Ackerman (University of California at San Diego)
Inflectional Morphology and the Developmental Sciences

Greg Stump (University of Kentucky)
The formal and functional architecture of inflectional morphology
