Meeting Description: 

The Workshop on FEATURES (1-2 September 2007) will be associated with the LAGB 2007 conference at King's College London.  It will bring together linguists who have grappled with features as a component of theoretical models together with others who have considered their range and variability in the world's languages. 

Workshop on FEATURES, 1-2 September 2007
King's College London
in association with LAGB Conference 2007

In attempting to understand language, a central notion is features. Examples are  person (1st, 2nd,3rd), number (singular, plural, dual...) tense (present, past...), and inflectional class (I, II, III, IV). Features have proved invaluable for analysis and description, and have a major role in contemporary linguistics, right across the range of the discipline. Yet little is firmly established about features: we have no readily available inventory of which features are found in the world's languages, no generally agreed account of how they operate across different components of language and no certainty on how they interact. Features are widely used, but are little discussed. The conference will therefore bring together linguists who have grappled with features as a component of theoretical models together with others who have considered their range and variability in the world's languages.

There will be six guest speakers: David Adger, Peter Austin, Anne Copestake, Ron Kaplan, Maria Polinsky, Ivan Sag.  

The programme organisers of the Workshop are Greville Corbett and Anna Kibort, Surrey Morphology Group (www.surrey.ac.uk/LIS/SMG/).  The local organisers of the LAGB meeting at King's College London, Devyani Sharma and Eleni Gregoromichelaki, have kindly agreed to take on the local arrangements.  The call for papers will be posted together with the LAGB 2007 circular in the spring 2007.
