Meeting Description:

10th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM10)

The 10th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM10) will take place at the University of Haifa (Israel) on September 7-10, 2015.

The topic of the conference is:

“Quo vadis morphology? Grammar, cognition and computation”

The aim of these meetings is to bring together linguists who work on morphology in an informal setting which guarantees maximal interaction between researchers, and gives young linguists an opportunity to present their work at a conference of moderate size where fruitful contacts with senior linguists can be established. The traditional emphasis on morphology of European languages is expanded in this 10th anniversary meeting to also include local languages of Israel as well as sign languages, and will emphasize future directions in morphology, such as morphology and cognition, and computational approaches.

Invited Speakers:

Stephen R. Anderson (Yale University)
Mark Aronoff (Stony Brook University)
Ray Jackendoff (Tufts University)

Program Outline:

September 7, afternoon: Workshop on languages in Israel, including sign languages
September 8: Thematic session ''Quo vadis morphology?''
September 9: Free topic session
September 10: Excursion
