Meeting Description:

Workshop on Computational Phonology and Morphology
Saturday, July 11, 2015
At the LSA Summer Institute at the University of Chicago

Among the key questions in phonology and morphology are those that revolve around representation, distribution, learning, typology, variation, and change. Recent years have witnessed an increased interest in computational approaches (broadly construed, encompassing all species of formal, algorithmic, and quantitative methods) to phonology and morphology. How have they contributed to our understanding of language, particularly with regard to the domains of phonology and morphology? What are the unsolved issues in phonology and morphology on which computational approaches may shed light? Along the theme of big data of the 2015 LSA Summer Institute at the University of Chicago, how does---or not---the availability of larger and more accessible data alter the landscape of research among phonologists and morphologists, and what are the (new) challenges in light of big data?

The Workshop on Computational Phonology and Morphology, to be held on Saturday July 11, 2015, at the LSA Summer Institute at the University of Chicago, is devoted to these topics and questions of general interest to linguists, featuring invited talks by Institute instructors whose research concerns phonology and morphology from computational perspectives.
