This volume contains a selection of the papers presented at the 7th Décembrettes, an international conference on linguistic morphology held at the University of Toulouse – Le Mirail on December 2-3, 2010. Since 2002, the Décembrettes have brought specialists of morphology to Southwestern France on a biannual basis, and have become one of the major conferences for scholars in this discipline. Over the years particular attention has been paid to the relationship of morphology to other disciplines, including linguistic typology, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics and neurolinguistics. Overall, twenty-six talks and posters were presented at this seventh edition, reflecting the variety of approaches and methodologies to be found in present-day morphology. The papers presented here propose studies of both inflectional and derivational morphology drawing on data from a wide range of typologically diverse languages. They propose synchronic and diachronic analyses, combining theoretical and empirical methods.
They include empirical studies of large amounts of data, theoretical discussions of fundamental issues, typological and experimental studies.
