Meeting Description:

Interdisciplinary Workshop on the Grammatical Word
University of California Davis
Davis, California
May 10-11 2013

A workshop to explore the concept of the GRAMMATICAL WORD from diverse theoretical perspectives, and its role in neuropsychological and computational models of morphology.

The concept of WORD is notoriously difficult to define. Besides denoting a prosodic unit (the phonological word) and a semantic unit (the lexeme), WORD is often used as a morphosyntactic unit: the grammatical word. This concept unifies concerns of inflectional morphology and morphophonology. It is the term on which paradigmatic relationships are defined. The grammatical word plays an important role in modelling storage and processing of lexical and grammatical information, in psychology and computer science as well. The linguistics department at UC Davis is organizing an interdisciplinary symposium on the grammatical word, to explore how different perspectives (theoretical and experimental) may converge in expanding our understanding of this multifaceted concept.

Invited Speakers:

Arto Anttila (Stanford U., Linguistics)
Brian Joseph (OSU, Linguistics & Slavic Lang. & Lit.)
Martha McGinnis (U. of Victoria, Linguistics)
Lee Osterhout (U. of Washington, Psychology)
Owen Rambow (Columbia U., Ctr. for Computational Learning Systems)

Organizer: Raúl Aranovich (UC Davis, Linguistics)

Call for Papers:

Abstracts are accepted from any discipline dealing with the term, especially in (but not limited to) the following areas:

- Inflectional morphology and its relation to phonology and semantics
- Word-and-paradigm vs. item-and-arrangement models of morphology
- Morphological paradigms: synchronic and diachronic perspectives
- Synthetic and analytic (i.e. periphrastic) word forms
- Syncretism and related problems
- Words and the Lexical Integrity Principle
- Word forms in Distributed Morphology
- Productivity, inflection, and mental representation
- The neuropsychological reality of inflected forms
- Storage and retrieval of grammatical information in word processing
- Acquisition of word forms in first and second language
- Representation of inflectional features in NLP
- Automatic tagging and disambiguation of word forms

Abstract submission deadline: January 11, 2013

- 12 pt. font
- 2 pages maximum, including examples, figures, and references
- A title should appear at the top of the abstract
