Meeting Description:

The Surrey Morphology Group will be holding a one-day workshop on computational approaches to morphological complexity, hosted by Paris-Sorbonne University, on Friday, February 22, 2013.

Theme of the Workshop:

Inflection often (or even typically) displays formal patterns which cannot be readily derived from the syntactic and semantic categories which it realizes. Phenomena such as inflectional classes, syncretism, defectiveness and deponency manifest what appear to be a purely morphological element in the composition of words and paradigms. Computational treatment of these questions has proved particularly insightful, yielding some of the most interesting contemporary research on morphology. This workshop is devoted to exploring some of the latest trends.

Invited Speakers:

Roger Evans (Brighton)
Olivier Bonami (Paris)

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite abstracts for 25-minute talks (plus a 15-minute question period). The abstracts should fit on a single sheet, with the author's name, affiliation and contact information on a separate sheet. They should be sent to morphological.complexity[]gmail.com by November 30, 2012. Notification of acceptance will be mid-December 2012.
