New Fields for Morphology Workshop, 2-3 Nov 2018, University of Surrey

Outreach

2018 New Fields for Morphology Workshop to be held on the 2 and 3 of November 2018 at the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom. 

The main purpose of the workshop is to engage morphological theory with exciting new empirical data. The workshop hopes to foster a community of morphologists concerned with both empirical and theoretical issues. Contributions are ideally based on first-hand data of individual languages or adopt a broadly comparative perspective. All theoretical frameworks are equally welcome including papers which do not fit in with any particular framework. Papers that adopt a diachronic or comparative perspective are also welcomed to the extent they engage theoretical concerns. 

Invited Speaker: Alice Harris 

Location: University of Surrey, Guildford, UK 

Dates: 2-3 of November 2018
