Meeting Description:

The 6th conference in the series ''Typology of Morphosyntactic Parameters'' jointly organized by the Institute of Modern Linguistic Research of the Moscow State Pedagogical University and the Institute of Linguistics of the Russian Academy of Sciences will be held in Moscow on 12-14 October 2016.

The conference focuses on issues of cross-linguistic diversity and unity in morphology, syntax and their interfaces approached from a variety of theoretical perspectives, formalist and functionalist alike.

As a special session of the conference “Typology of Morphosyntactic Parameters 2016” the 4th Conference on General, Nordic and Slavic linguistics for undergraduate and doctoral students (GeNSLing 2016) will be held on October 12–14 2016. The details of this session will be announced separately.

Organizing Committee:

Anton Zimmerling (Institute for Modern Linguistic Research, MSPU / Institute of Linguistics, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow)
Ekaterina Lyutikova (Lomonosov Moscow State University / Institute for Modern Linguistic Research, MSPU Moscow)
Yakov Testelets (Institute of Linguistics, Russian Academy of Sciences / Russian State University for the Humanities, MSPU Moscow)
Peter Arkadiev (Institute of Slavic Studies, Russian Academy of Sciences / Russian State University for the Humanities / Institute for Modern Linguistic Research, MSPU Moscow)

Call for Papers:

The deadline for abstract submission is 29 May 2016.

Priority will be given to paper proposals discussing the interaction of morphological and syntactic mechanisms, interfaces between syntax, prosody and information structure and showing the interplay of general, type-specific and language-specific morphological and syntactic features through the detailed analysis of world’s languages. Submissions will be rated by experts and selected by the organizing committee.

Undergraduate and doctoral students may submit abstracts for both TMP 2016 and GeNSLing 2016, depending on the topic; one person may only submit one single-authored and one co-authored abstract.

Anonymous abstracts (no less than 1 page, no more than 2 pages, with 12 points font, 1 point spacing, all margins 2,5 cm) in DOC and PDF formats should be sent to the following email address: Abstracts violating these requirements will not be considered.

The author’s or authors’ first and second names, affiliation, email and contact phone number should be specified in the body of the email, not in the text of the abstract.

The organizing committee is currently looking for funding for the conference; the introduction of a moderate conference fee for participants and attendants is not excluded.
