Meeting Description:

Empirical Approaches to Morphological Case is a one-day workshop The workshop will be held at the LSA Summer Institute (Stanford, CA) on 21 July 2007. 

In recent years new and varied approaches to the empirical study of morphological case have significantly increased our understanding of the empirical phenomenon. These approaches have informed more refined theoretical models which necessarily address interface questions, especially the interface of morphological case with semantics. Such studies may rely on corpora, experimental evidence, and the investigation of (synchronic and diachronic) variation and how it bears on synchronic analyses. 

The aim of this workshop is to establish greater awareness of the benefit of different empirical approaches to the study of case, the insights that such studies provide, and how they inform theoretical models. Possible research questions may include, but need not be limited to, the following:

- expanding our understanding of case phenomena through novel empirical methods
- investigating how morphological case interfaces with other aspects of the grammar
- hypothesizing about how this interface should be modelled theoretically

Talks will be 25 mins long with 10 mins for questions. 

Invited speakers include:
Andrew Spencer (Essex)
Miriam Butt (Konstanz)
Joan Maling (Brandeis) and Jongsup Jun (Hankuk)
