Meeting Description: 

LUCL Leiden, the Meertens Instituut (KNAW) and Mouton de Gruyter are 
very happy to announce a workshop on Morphosyntax-Phonology Interface 
Theories to be held in Leiden on December 8, 2010.

The workshop is centered around the topics addressed in Tobias Scheer's 
latest book 'A Guide to Morphosyntax-Phonology Interface Theories. How 
Extra-Phonological Information is treated in Phonology since Trubetzkoy's 
Grenzsignale', which reviews the history of morphosyntax-phonology 
interface from structuralism until phase theory. The questions to be 
addressed include:

-What should a good interface theory look like? 
-To what extent is modularity required in a theory of language? 
-How can we use properties of morpho-syntactic theory to argue for or  
against competing theories of phonology (and vice-versa)?
-Mainly representational models (like prosodic phonology) alternate  
historically with mainly derivational ones (like phase theory). However,  
exclusively representational or exclusively derivational models do not seem 
to be plausible. Where can we draw the line between derivation and 
representation? How much derivation is needed, and how much 
representation, to account for interface events?

On this occasion, Tobias Scheer's book will also be presented.

Invited speakers:
- Lisa Cheng
- David Embick
- Pavel Iosad
- Rita Manzini
- Marc van Oostendorp
- Andres Saab & Anikó Liptak
- Tobias Scheer
- Laura Downing

All interested are welcome to attend.
