Meeting Description:

'Autonomous Morphology in Diachrony: The Romance Languages (and Beyond)'

The members of the AHRC-funded research project 'Autonomous Morphology in
Diachrony: comparative evidence from the Romance languages' in the Research
Centre for Romance Linguistics at the University of Oxford are pleased to
announce that the second Oxford workshop on Romance morphology will take place
at St Catherine's College, Oxford, from 8 to 10 October 2010. The workshop will
highlight research being carried out by the members of the project; the
principal focus will be on basic features of the structure of Romance verb
paradigms, especially the notion of autonomously morphological structures in the
Romance inflectional system and their diachronic significance. The following
invited speakers will also be giving papers:

Stephen R. Anderson (Yale)
Mark Aronoff (Stony Brook)
Michele Loporcaro (Zürich)
Nigel Vincent (Manchester)

Call for Papers

Proposals for posters
Researchers working on verb morphology in the Romance languages are invited to
submit proposals for a poster session. Autonomously morphological phenomena are
by their nature expected to be idiosyncratic and language-specific, but we
welcome proposals dealing with data from other languages and offering a
comparison with Romance.

All abstracts, which should be no more than 500 words, must be submitted
electronically as a pdf document to oxmorphmod-langs.ox.ac.uk by 31 May 2010.
Please use 'Abstract - Name(s) of author(s)' as the Subject header and include
the following information in the body of the message: 1. Name(s) of author(s);
2. Affiliation(s); 3. E-mail address(es); 4. Title of abstract. Notification of
acceptance will be sent by 1 July 2010

Researchers working on verb morphology in the Romance languages are invited to
submit proposals for a poster session (see call for papers).

Since space is very limited, those wishing to attend should register for this
event by sending an e-mail to oxmorphmod-langs.ox.ac.uk as soon as possible.
Conference Fee: £ 35 (£20 for students)
