Meeting Description: 

The Surrey Morphology Group will be holding a one-day workshop on computational approaches to morphological complexity, hosted by Paris-Sorbonne University, on Friday, February 22, 2013. 

Theme of the Workshop:

Inflection often (or even typically) displays formal patterns which cannot be readily derived from the syntactic and semantic categories which it realizes. Phenomena such as inflectional classes, syncretism, defectiveness and deponency manifest what appear to be a purely morphological element in the composition of words and paradigms. Computational treatment of these questions has proved particularly insightful, yielding some of the most interesting contemporary research on morphology. This workshop is devoted to exploring some of the latest trends.

Invited Speakers:

Roger Evans (Brighton)
Olivier Bonami (Paris) 

The workshop will be held at the Maison de la recherche of the Université Paris-Sorbonne (28, rue Serpente, 75006 Paris) on Friday, February 22, 2013. It is free and open to all. For planning purposes, if you would like to attend, we request that you send a message by email to morphological.complexity AT gmail.com by February 14th 2013.
