Linguistic Field(s): Morphology

Meeting Description:

As linguists are quite aware, language can exist without significant morphological structure. In fact, morphological structure typically contributes to the overall complexity of a language. This symposium will address issues of morphological complexity from four different perspectives: cognitive computation, lexical processing, diversity and evolution, and the theory of grammar.

Invited speakers will each provide a daily lecture over the course of four days (Monday-Thursday) in each of these areas. The fifth day (Friday) will be devoted to poster presentations in each of the four areas, followed by focus group discussion for each area.
