Due to confusion of events and places, I am re-posting the 3rd CFP of the workshop Dissecting Morphological Theory 3: Diminutivization, Allomorphy and the Architecture of Grammar (DMTD3).

This workshop is related to IMM, not to MMM, and will take place in Budapest, not in Bucharest (the host of SLE 2022). The abstract submission deadlines for IMM and MMM are very close and both meetings are indeed devoted to morphology but IMM and MMM are completely different events. Additionally, IMM and SLE have the same abstract submission deadline (15 January 2022) but Budapest and Bucharest are two different cities in two different, though neighboring, countries.

If you have any problems to meet the abstract submission deadline for this workshop (15 January 2022), please do not hesitate to contact the workshop organizers, their e-mails are listed below.

Third CFP: Dissecting Morphological Theory 3: Diminutivization, Allomorphy and the Architecture of Grammar

Workshop to be held in conjunction with the 20th International Morphology Meeting, Budapest, 1-4 September 2022, http://www.nytud.hu/imm20/<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytud.hu%2Fimm20%2F&data=04%7C01%7C%7Ca39a0ca9362444f993cb08d9d6a8fe47%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637776843583908641%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=ybs%2FRcLZqcjanpSb2pfunyy9RPAlNJpt3R4W%2B1eqJoI%3D&reserved=0>

This workshop is the third of a series of workshops on diminutive morphology and its implications for morphological theory. The workshops are held in conjunction with different international conferences: https://sites.google.com/view/morphologytheories-diminutives<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fsites.google.com%2Fview%2Fmorphologytheories-diminutives%2Fhome&data=04%7C01%7C%7Ca39a0ca9362444f993cb08d9d6a8fe47%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C637776843583908641%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=LtsiGmR0hCnYe4Ppx5WDXjdmUxnYQ5lE5ISRzxuC6AE%3D&reserved=0>.

Diminutive morphology presents a number of challenges to morphological theory and various issues have been discussed extensively: whether diminutivization is derivation or inflection (Dressler 1989; Scalise 1988; Stump 1993; Manova 2011; Grandi & Körtvélyessy 2015); are diminutive suffixes heads and/or modifiers (Wiltschko and Steriopolo 2007; Steriopolo 2009, 2015, 2016; Gouskova & Bobaljik, to appear); do they attach "low" or "high" in the syntactic tree (De Belder et al. 2014; Cinque 2015); which meanings are associated with diminutive morphology (Dressler & Merlini Barbaresi 1994; Jurafsky 1996) and so on. Nevertheless, there are still issues that have remained unaddressed:
1.      Why do some languages have large sets of diminutive affixes, while others have very limited sets?
2.      What is a diminutive allomorph? (Should allomorphs have the same semantic-pragmatic function, e.g. could they have different readings, either positive or negative, depending on the situation? Should allomorphs be associated with the same inflection class? Should allomorphs have the same syntactic function: are they either heads or modifiers or could they be both; could they attach at different "heights" in the syntactic tree, resulting in "high" vs. "low" allomorphs?)
3.      How does allomorph selection take place in diminutivization? (Is it based on semantics, on form, on syntactic structure, on linearization, or on extragrammatical information?)
4.      Are gender and inflection class encoded in the same way in diminutive and non-diminutive nouns? (If diminutive affixes impose gender and inflection class, what does this mean for our understanding of the morphology-syntax interface?)
5.      What architecture of grammar best captures the peculiarities of diminutive morphology?
(a) Phonology after morphology, i.e. morphologically conditioned phonology (and consequently phonology-free syntax)
(b) Phonology before morphology, i.e. phonologically conditioned morphology (and maybe also syntax)
(c) A mixture of (a) and (b).

We invite papers that tackle any aspect of diminutive allomorphy within any linguistic theory, including papers on the diachronic development of  allomorphy in diminutive morphology. Contributions that analyze not only selected affixes but also complete diminutive systems and/or relate their findings to the architecture of grammar are particularly welcome.
