the literature, that is, less studied languages and/or less-studied varieties of
more-represented languages.

We welcome the submission of papers on topics including (but not limited to):
voice, case-marking, agreement, cliticization, complex predicate formation,
verb serialization, noun incorporation, morphological blocking, lexical
integrity, word order variation.

In addition to the above stated goals, the conference encourages comparisons
between different theoretical frameworks.
