Words: structure, meaning, acquisition, processing

Host Institution: Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Coordinating Institution: Norwegian University of Science and Technology
Website: http://www.networds-esf.eu/index.php?mact=News,cntnt01,detail,0&cntnt01articleid=25&cntnt01returnid=15

Dates: 04-Aug-2014 - 09-Aug-2014
Location: Trondheim, Norway

Focus: The school will bring together, for a full week, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers from all over Europe and beyond to attend courses on interdisciplinary approaches to the study of word structure and usage, focusing on either thematic or methodological issues. The school intends to target two levels of studentship, ranging from less experienced to more experienced attendants, according to the following rationale.

Minimum Education Level: MA

The school is jointly organised and sponsored by NetWordS, the ESF Research Networking programme on "Word Structure" (http://www.networds-esf.eu/), and the Norwegian Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology

Thematic courses:
- Fundamental issues in Theoretical Morphology (Antonio Fábregas)
- Issues in Morpho-phonology (Ingo Plag)
- Lexical semantics (Carita Paradis)
- Semantics and word formation (Paolo Acquaviva)
- Morphology in language contact (Francesco Gardani)
- Morphology acquisition (Wolfgang U. Dressler)
- Morphological processing (Martina Penke)
- Aspects of bilingual lexical processing (Hélène Giraudo, Madeleine Voga)
‘Non-specialist’ courses are geared towards PhD students and postdocs that do not specialize in the particular areas dealt with by the courses but would like to seize the opportunity to broaden their horizon beyond their respective
specializations. ‘Specialist courses’ are more geared towards PhD students and postdocs that have already some first-hand experience in the areas covered by the courses and are interested in discussing related advanced research issues.

Methodological courses:
- Statistics for newbies (Melanie Bell)
- Naïve Discriminative Learning (Harald Baayen)
- Obtaining behavioural data for lexical research (Emmanuel Keuleers)
- Neurolinguistic issues in lexical access and organisation (Mila Vulchanova, Vito Pirrelli)
- Computational morphology for newbies: automata and hierarchical lexica (Gábor Prószéky)
- Connectionist architectures for lexical modelling (Claudia Marzi, Marcello Ferro)
‘Basic’ courses are geared towards people with very little experience in the methods dealt with by the courses. ‘Advanced’ courses are geared towards people with previous experience in the domains addressed by the courses and
are seeking expert tutoring on more complex problems arising in connection with the specific methods under discussion.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Tuition: 0 Other

Tuition Explanation: The school is free of tuition fees and will be able to accept only a limited number of attendants (up to one hundred). Attendant accommodation and meals will partly be provided by NetWordS and the Norwegian Graduate Researcher School in Linguistics and Philology.
