    New Fields for Morphology Workshop

    Following the success of the NFMW held in Melbourne in 2016, we are pleased to announce the 2018 New Fields for Morphology Workshop to be held on the 2nd and 3rd of November 2018 at the University of Surrey in the United Kingdom. This will be held in conjunction with the long running South East Morphology Meeting involving a themed session on exponence.

    The main purpose of the workshop is to engage morphological theory with exciting new empirical data. We hope 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

    Themed session: Complexities of exponence

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

     Invited Speaker:

    Alice Harris (University of Massachusetts Amherst)

     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 are 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:

    Important Dates:

    • Abstract Deadline: 1 July 2018
    • Notification of Acceptance: 6 August 2018
