New Fields for Morphology

2nd-3rd of November 2018
University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

Call for papers

The New Fields for Morphology Workshop seeks papers on any topic in morphological theory or typology based on new empirical data. In addition to the open call, we also request papers for the theme session on 'Complexities of Exponence'.

Themed session: Complexities of exponence

The workshop will include a dedicated session on the theme of 'Complexities of Exponence.'

Exponence refers to mapping between morphosyntactic and morphosemantic contexts and the internal structure of morphologically complex words. Typically, morphosyntactic and morphosemantic contexts are represented as feature values and in the simplest possible of worlds, each feature value maps uniquely onto a single unique form. However, morphologists are aware that this mapping is rarely simple in reality. The workshop seeks papers which explore complexity in this relationship from any theoretical or typological perspective.

Submission Instructions:

Authors may submit one solo-authored abstract and one joint abstract. Submissions may be to either the general session or the themed session as long as in total only one solo-authored abstract per author is submitted.

Talks will be either 20 or 30 minutes depending on the number of abstracts accepted. Please limit abstracts to a single A4 page including references and figures. Abstracts should be anonymous and marked as either for the general or theme submission.

Please submit in .pdf using the following link:
