What's in a Word? Exploring Communication between Syntax and Phonology
A workshop coming up at CASTL / the University of Tromsø
September 16th: UB Auditorium; September 17th: Auditoriet Nedre Lysthus
Pavel Caha, Martin Krämer, Dragana ?urkalovi?
Both syntax and phonology have undergone rather dramatic changes over the last
decades. In this workshop we want to bring together phonologists and
syntacticians to (i) re-visit the old connections in view of recent developments
within both fields, as well as (ii) establish new potential areas of
communication between the two fields.
Since the late 80s, syntacticians have been working towards an increasingly
articulate view of syntactic structure. The traditional split between lexical
and functional categories is being lost and many lexical elements in the
syntactic tree have been reanalyzed as a sequence of functional projections.
What are the consequences of such proposals for phonologists, who count on the
traditional distinction? Similarly, syntactic research has been progressively
drifting away from the notion of a (morpho)syntactic 'word'; what consequences
does this have for the mapping between syntax and phonology?
On the other hand, what useful insights do phonological criteria, as used to
establish the levels of Lexical Phonology or Stratal OT, or the domains of
Prosodic Phonology, contribute to syntactic analysis? Do phenomena such as
allomorphy and mutations tell us something about the ordering and interaction of
syntactic operations, lexical look-up and phonology? To what extent can
phonology use syntactic features in the specification of environments for the
application of phonological processes?
