Full Title: 17th International Morphology Meeting 
Short Title: IMM17 

Date: 18-Feb-2016 - 21-Feb-2016
Location: Vienna, Austria 
Contact Person: Elisabeth Peters
Meeting Email: elisabeth.peters at wu.ac.at

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics; Morphology 

Call Deadline: 30-Jun-2015 

Meeting Description:

IMM17 will center around one main topic, competition in morphology, which will also provide the title of the planned selected-papers volume.

In many cases, languages offer more than one option for realizing a certain bundle of features (in inflection) or complex concepts (in word formation). The ensuing problems have been treated in terms of competition or rivalry, under disparate labels, including Panini's Principle, the Elsewhere Condition, blocking, pre-emption, suppletion, overabundance, contamination, constructional blend, constraint rankings, inheritance, race models, identification of the 'nearest neighbor' in analogical models, etc. Intimately related topics are productivity and restrictions on productivity. By putting these associated phenomena at center stage, we would like to stimulate the theoretical discussion about this important area of morphological research.

Besides this main topic the conference will be thematically open in order to serve as a seismograph for diagnosing tectonic shifts going on in the morphological landscape. At the same time, workshops up to a limit of twelve papers are welcome to any topic in morphology, excluding, of course, the main topic.
