The First International Conference on the Mental Lexicon is soliciting
abstracts for papers or posters that bear on the question of how
morphologically simple and complex words are represented in the mind (their
morphological, phonological, syntactic, and semantic properties), how they
are linked to one another, and how they are accessed in the processes of
language production and comprehension. We welcome submissions of
theoretical, psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research. 


The conference will be held at the University of Alberta. The University is
located in the city of Edmonton and is one of the largest research-intensive
universities in Canada. The Canadian Rockies and the mountain towns of Banff
and Jasper are a 3-4 hour drive from the city.
