Meeting Description:

DGfS 2012 Workshop: Phonology-Morphology Interface in Language Acquisition and Language Disorders
DGfS 2012 Conference: 6-9 March 2012, Frankfurt, Germany

Linguistic competence is often described as a cognitive ability which comprises different autonomous modules which each have specific characteristics, but which also interact in interesting ways. Until the 1990s, psycholinguistic research (e.g., language acquisition studies and research on language disorders) mainly focused on individual components of grammar. Many researchers confined themselves to investigating how speech sounds, syllable structure or inflectional systems are acquired or how they are affected by speech disorders. In the past two decades, an increasing number of studies have been published which suggest that the acquisition or loss of grammatical structures in one linguistic area is conditioned by the development or attrition in another component of the grammar. Consider as an example the fact that the acquisition of the inflectional ending -st in German presupposes that the child already has a syllable structure that allows the realization of consonants in coda position or in a syllabic appendix.

The planned workshop will focus on the interactions between phonology and morphology in language acquisition and language disorders. The workshop intends to bring together phonologists, morphologists, psycholinguists and neurolinguists and provides an ideal opportunity to discuss new research results, theoretical models and experimental methods that contribute to a better understanding of how acquisition and attrition of morphological structures relate to the complexity of phonological structures.
