(Berkeley), Junko Ito (Santa Cruz), John McCarthy (Amherst),
Armin Mester (Santa Cruz), Alan Prince (Rutgers), Patricia Shaw
(Br. Columbia).

Aim of the Workshop:
The aim of the workshop is to contribute to the discussion of the
Phonology-Morphology Interface, within the framework of
*Prosodic Morphology*.
The central goal in this field is to gain insight into the nature of
the mutual dependence of morphological and prosodic categories. This
line of research was initiated in the seventies by McCarthy's work
in the morphology of the Semitic languages, was followed up by
Marantz' account of reduplication, and has recently been formulated
as the theoretical framework of Prosodic Morphology by McCarthy
and Prince. The key observation of this field is that in many
languages morphological categories are characterized by a fixed
phonological shape, or 'template'. Moreover, it is claimed that
templates are defined in terms of prosodic categories, such as
mora, syllable, foot, and prosodic word. Some typically 'templatic'
phenomena are reduplication, truncation, canonic stem specifications,
and minimal word statements.
The workshop will cover empirical, theoretical and methodological
aspects of this approach.

SEND A MAXIMALLY 2-page ABSTRACT *before 1 February 1994* to
Rene Kager/Wim Zonneveld
Workshop in Prosodic Morphology
