Meeting Description:

Data-Rich Approaches to English Morphology:
From Corpora and Experiments to Theory and Back

Recent work on English morphology has shown that morphological theory as well as the understanding of the morphological systems of particular languages can profit immensely from the study of large data sets that have become available through corpora and experiments. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers that entertain data-rich approaches to English morphology to advance our understanding of this language and of morphological structure in general.
