Meeting Description:

Interdisciplinary Workshop on the Grammatical Word
University of California Davis
Davis, California
May 10-11 2013

A workshop to explore the concept of the GRAMMATICAL WORD from diverse theoretical perspectives, and its role in neuropsychological and computational models of morphology.

The concept of WORD is notoriously difficult to define. Besides denoting a prosodic unit (the phonological word) and a semantic unit (the lexeme), WORD is often used as a morphosyntactic unit: the grammatical word. This concept unifies concerns of inflectional morphology and morphophonology. It is the term on which paradigmatic relationships are defined. The grammatical word plays an important role in modelling storage and processing of lexical and grammatical information, in psychology and computer science as well. The linguistics department at UC Davis is organizing an interdisciplinary symposium on the grammatical word, to explore how different perspectives (theoretical and experimental) may converge in expanding our understanding of this multifaceted concept.

Invited Speakers:

Arto Anttila (Stanford U., Linguistics)
Brian Joseph (OSU, Linguistics & Slavic Lang. & Lit.)
Martha McGinnis (U. of Victoria, Linguistics)
Lee Osterhout (U. of Washington, Psychology)
Owen Rambow (Columbia U., Ctr. for Computational Learning Systems)

Organizer: Raúl Aranovich (UC Davis, Linguistics)
