Linguistic Field(s): Morphology

Meeting Description:

This conference takes up the issue of 'Contact Morphology' raised be David
Wilkins in 1996. It will shed new light on the behaviour of morphology under the
conditions of language contact. More than 40 papers will be presented and new
theory-based concepts will be discussed.

In the majority of contact-related studies, morphology is at best a marginal
topic. According to the extant borrowing hierachies, bound morphology is copied
only rarely, if at all, because morphological copies presuppose long-term
intensive contact with prior massive borrowing of content words and function
words. On the other hand, especially in studies of morphological change, contact
is often identified as the decisive factor which triggers the disintegration of
morphology systems. However,it remains to be seen whether these two standard
treatments of morphology in contact situations exhaust the phenomenology of
Contact Morphology.

''Morphologies in Contact'' forms part of the program of the ''Festival of
Languages'' (announcement coming soon).
