Meeting Description:

The Interaction between Borrowing and Word Formation

Workshop convenors: Pius ten Hacken & Renáta Panocová

When new concepts need to be named two of the most prominent naming procedures
are borrowing and word formation. This has been the case throughout the
history of languages. However, the study of borrowing has been largely
incorporated into etymology whereas word formation has been studied in the
context of morphology.

In the study of etymology, the history of words has been traced through the
identification of cognates in related languages for which relevant historical
connections are plausible. In modern contexts, for which language contacts
have been documented more systematically, borrowing is especially prominent in
technical and scientific vocabulary.

In the field of morphology, derivation and compounding have been studied in
terms of word formation rules. Work in morphology often tends to maximize the
scope of word formation rules, to the point that a word formation analysis is
proposed for a word that could also be analysed as a borrowing.

In this workshop we want to focus on cases for which borrowing and word
formation analyses are both relevant. This can be as competing analyses or as
collaboration. Competition is exemplified by English ''dependence''. This can
be analysed as a borrowing from French or as a formation based on ''depend''.
Collaboration is exemplified by neoclassical word formation in English.
''Morphology'' was not borrowed from Ancient Greek, but the components arose
by reanalysis of borrowings from Ancient Greek.


Call for Papers:

The workshop is planned as a part of the 50th Annual Meeting of the Societas
Linguistica Europea (SLE), which takes place in Zürich, 10-13 September 2017.
We invite submissions of abstracts of 300 words (excluding references)
outlining contributions to the workshop. These submissions should be emailed
to the workshop organizers (pius.ten-hacken at uibk.ac.at and
renata.panocova at upjs.sk). After the organizers have decided which submissions
will be accepted to the workshop, they will submit a workshop proposal with
abstracts to the SLE organizers.

Important Dates:

25 October 2016: Deadline for submission of 300-word abstracts to the workshop
organizers (pius.ten-hacken at uibk.ac.at and renata.panocova at upjs.sk)

submission of the workshop proposal to SLE
