LAGB Spring Meeting 1997: University of Edinburgh

The 1997 Spring Meeting will be held from Monday 7 to Wednesday
9 April at the University of Edinburgh, where the Association will be
guests of the Department of Linguistics. The Local Organiser is Alice
Turk (turkling.ed.ac.uk). Enquiries about the meeting should be
addressed to: Alice Turk, LAGB 1997, Department of Linguistics, Adam
Ferguson Building, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH8 9LL.

Events: The Linguistics Association 1997 Lecture on the Monday
evening will be delivered by Joan Bresnan (Stanford) and is entitled
"Morphology competes with syntax: beyond the inflectional paradigm".

There will be a Workshop on "The role of morphology in current
syntactic theory" organised by Kersti Borjars and Nigel Vincent
(University of Manchester). In much recent work on syntactic theory,
analyses have made the tacit assumption that morphological and
syntactic elements obey the same principles (e.g. c-command) and can
be expressed in the same notation (i.e. trees). At the same time, a
number of influential morphologists (e.g. Anderson, Aronoff and
Beard) have argued for the separationist hypothesis according to
which morphological constructs obey a set of independent principles
which only partly, or not at all, overlap with the set of syntactic
principles. In this workshop we will explore within a number of
frameworks the consequences of this renewed interest in the
interaction and integration of morphological and syntactic data. We
will look particularly at Lexical-Functional Grammar, Head-driven
Phrase Structure Grammar and the Minimalist Program. There will
be talks by Joan Bresnan (Stanford), Elisabet Engdahl (Gotenburg),
Gillian Ramchand (Oxford) and Greg Stump (Kentucky) and these
will be followed by a general discussion.

The Language Tutorial, organised by Jane Simpson (Sydney) will be on
languages of Central Australia. The tutorials will be about four
neighbouring Pama-Nyungan languages (Warumungu, Warlpiri,
Warlmanpa and Gurindji) and a fifth neighbour, the non-Pama-Nyungan
Wambaya. The phonologies and grammars of these languages share
many properties, including category-specific phonology, assimilation
and dissimilation processes, ERGATIVE-ABSOLUTIVE case-marking,
free word order, bound pronouns, switch reference systems, some of
which we hope to cover. We will describe the changing sociolinguistic
situation, considering land-language relations, multilingualism,
language change, code-switching, as well as auxiliary languages such as sign
language. The speakers will be: Jane Simpson (Sydney), David Nash
(Australian National University), Patrick McConvell (Northern
Territory University), Rachel Nordlinger (Stanford) and possibly Mary
Laughren (Queensland).
