Meeting Description:

The Surrey Morphology Group is hosting a one-day workshop titled 'Inflectional Morphology and verb classes in the Oto-Manguean languages of Mexico' at The University of Surrey, Guildford, UK, on Friday 14 March 2014.

Languages of the Oto-Manguean phylum display some of the most complex inflection class systems ever described. The sheer number of classes, their unpredictability, and the layering of cross-classifying systems of affixation, tone and stem alternations present both a descriptive and theoretical challenge. This workshop features some of the leading figures in the field and will provide a space for exposition and discussion about some of these major challenges.

Invited speakers will be:

- Anthony Woodbury (University of Texas at Austin), Chatino family
- Jean-Léo Léonard (LPP & Université Paris 3), Mazatecan family
- Rosemary Beam (UNAM, Mexico City), Southern Zapotec family
- Søren Wichmann (MPI-EVA), Tlapanecan family
- Yuni Kim (University of Manchester), San Juan Amuzgos Amuzgo

This workshop is part of the ESRC/AHRC co-funded research project 'Endangered Complexity: Inflectional classes in Oto-Manguean languages' (http://www.esrc.ac.uk/my-esrc/grants/RES-062-23-3126/read).

Everybody is welcome to attend the workshop, but in order to prepare for the catering (lunch, drinks and coffee will be provided) we kindly request that you let us know in advance of your intention to attend.

The RES-062-23-3126 project has a small amount of funding allocated to assist with the travel expenses of a number of postgraduate students studying at a UK institution. If you are interested in being considered for this assistance, please send Timothy Feist (t.feistsurrey.ac.uk) a brief outline by the end of January 2014 of how you think the topic of this workshop is relevant to your research. It would be desirable if you could also include a few lines of support from your supervisor.
