Descripción del seminario: “Relaciones entre Morfología y Sintaxis”

De todos es conocido el auge que la lingüística ha experimentado en los últimos treinta años, en un escenario cambiante, con el desarrollo de nuevos enfoques, los cuales dotan a los investigadores de instrumentos que permiten conseguir análisis más afinados sobre la información gramatical de las palabras, así como también sobre la manera como estas se relacionan con otras.

Tal como recogen las principales gramáticas de referencia del español (Piera & Varela 1999 y NGRAE 2009), desde finales de los noventa, muchos son los autores que, en el ámbito empírico, han puesto de manifiesto las interacciones existentes entre Morfología y Sintaxis en aspectos tan diversos como: a) la distinción de las clases de palabras o categorías gramaticales (en que intervienen tanto criterios formales como funcionales); b) la relación entre formas flexivas y operaciones sintácticas de rección y concordancia; y c) la sintaxis interna de las formas complejas (o estructura de los morfemas que forman una palabra) y su sintaxis externa (o proyección sintáctica de la palabra según sus características morfológicas). Por otra parte, en el ámbito teórico, la relación entre Morfología y Sintaxis se ha centrado en el debate en torno a si existe una división real entre estos dos componentes de la gramática.  Esta pregunta ha propiciado la reflexión sobre cuál es la naturaleza del conocimiento morfológico y cómo se organiza. Las respuestas han desembocado en dos enfoques distintos: la perspectiva lexicista, que concibe la morfología como un componente autónomo, y la corriente neoconstruccionista, que postula que “la morfología es, en realidad, sintaxis”, Fábregas (2013: 31).

En este marco de discusión científica y progreso de los estudios lingüísticos, el objetivo de este seminario es profundizar en el examen de las propiedades que presentan las palabras, con particular atención en las relaciones que se establecen entre Morfología y Sintaxis, para conseguir explicaciones más detalladas de un amplio abanico de fenómenos (sustantivos complejos deadjetivales, verbos complejos, locuciones verbales, prefijos locativos, preposiciones, vocales temáticas, flexión verbal, etc.), teniendo en cuenta las posibilidades explicativas que brindan los distintos enfoques teóricos.

Meeting Description:

 

In 2017, the Surrey Morphology Group (SMG) celebrates 25 years of research (see http://www.smg.surrey.ac.uk/). The SMG is a research centre dedicated to language diversity and its theoretical consequences, combining the investigation of grammatical categories in a wide variety of languages with explicit formal and statistical frameworks for expressing typological and theoretical generalizations. At the heart of this work is the study of morphology: the typology of possible words and the principles that govern both the relationships of forms to each other, and to the rest of grammar. This has meant taking a morphocentric approach to language, treating morphology not as a by-product or (merely) an interface between modules, but as a vantage point in its own right.

 

As part of the celebrations to mark 25 years since the inception of Surrey Morphology Group, a workshop will be held at the University of Surrey on September 8-9 2017.

The Morphological Eye: SMG 25th Anniversary Workshop

University of Surrey, 8-9 September 2017

(between the LAGB and SLE)

 

To mark this anniversary the SMG is organizing a two-day workshop. This will be an opportunity to reflect, and glance backwards, but mainly to look forwards. We therefore invite contributions in all areas of morphology, especially those which suggest future challenges, new approaches and innovative techniques. We especially welcome papers which take morphological phenomena as a viewpoint for looking out into other areas of linguistics.

 

One page anonymous abstracts please, attached to an email with your details, to smg@surrey.ac.uk, by Monday March 13. Queries about the workshop can be sent to this email too. Given the level of interest shown when we announced the dates, we expect the slots for talks to be short.

 

We plan a ‘warm-up’ on the evening of Thursday September 7, for those who arrive the night before, a full day on Friday September 8, and an early afternoon finish on Saturday September 9.

Morfofonología. Morfología, fonología y contrastividad

26 Feb

 

 

portada

 

 

 

El congreso “Morfofonología. Morfología, fonología y contrastividad” se propone como objetivo principal servir de foro de discusión sobre la interacción entre la morfología y la fonología, con especial atención a los ámbitos de variación, sea intralingüística, sea interlingüística, así como a los fenómenos contrastivos. No faltará, sin embargo, el espacio para un debate teórico en cada uno de los ámbitos implicados y en su interacción y entrecruzamiento. En los últimos años, en efecto, los desarrollos en el campo de la morfología y de la fonología han sido significativos; sin embargo, la preocupación no ha sido la misma en el estudio de la interacción entre ambas disciplinas, menos aún en el ámbito de la lingüística contrastiva o aplicada. Ha llegado la hora de unir estos ámbitos y su interacción.

Las comunicaciones al congreso podrán versar sobre aspectos teóricos, contrastivos y diacrónicos de la morfofonología, así como de cada una de las disciplinas involucradas. Aunque el congreso tratará en modo particular el español y el italiano, está abierto a otras lenguas. Las lenguas de trabajo del congreso serán español, italiano e inglés.

 

Las conferencias plenarias estarán a cargo de los siguientes especialistas:

– Dr. Antonio Fábregas (Universitetet i Tromso, Noruerga): “¿Cuánta morfología sabe la fonología?”

– Dra. Anna M. Thornton (Università dell’Aquila, Italia).): “Per una tipologia canonica della morfologia flessiva dell’italiano”

– Dra. Juana Gil Fernández (Centro Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, España): “Interacción de la fonética y la fonología en la enseñanza de la pronunciación del español”

– Dr. Renzo Miotti (Università degli Studi di Verona, Italia): “La enseñanza del español/LE a los dos lados del Atlántico: modelos de pronunciación en comparación”

– Dr. Francisco Matte Bon (Università degli Studi Internazionali di Roma, Italia).

 

Además de las conferencias plenarias, se organizarán secciones de comunicaciones. Las comunicaciones tendrán una duración de 20 min. (con 10 min. para el debate). Para participar en el congreso en calidad de ponente, se invita a los interesados a hacer su propuesta en el siguiente enlace: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=morfo2017, antes del 28 de febrero de 2017.

Descripción

The JENom workshops aim at bringing together researchers who are concerned with the morphology, syntax and semantics of nominalizations in various languages and frameworks.

 

JENom originated in France (which explains its French acronym: “Journées d’Études sur les Nominalisations”). Previous editions were held in Nancy, Lille, Paris, Stuttgart, Barcelona and Verona. This year’s JENom will take place at the University of Fribourg, on June 1-2, 2017.

 

JENom was initially dedicated to the study of argument structure and aspectual properties of deverbal nominalizations. Recent editions significantly broadened the focus of the workshop so as to include a larger variety of related topics and constructs. JENom 7 will continue along these lines. We invite submissions on any aspect of the study of nominalizations, eventuality-denoting nouns and related constructions (with no theoretical framework restriction). Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

– semantic classes of nominalizations,

– morphological construction of eventuality-denoting nouns (derivation, compounding, reduplication, etc.),

– deadjectival nouns,

– nominalizations of stative, psych or perception verbs,

– nominalizations of semelfactive or degree-achievement verbs,

– dispositional nominalizations,

– underived nouns with an event semantics,

– deadjectival and denominal verbs,

– polysemy of nominalizations,

– anaphoric uses of nominalizations,

– annotation of nominalizations in corpora,

– pluractionality in derived nominals,

– causation in the nominal domain,

– morphosyntax and semantics of nominals in broader constructions (light verbs, cognate objects, status constructus, etc.).

 

Each talk will receive 30 minutes for presentation and 10 minutes for discussion. Abstracts should be anonymous and should not exceed 2 pages in length (A4 or letter-size), in 12 pt. font, with 1-inch/2,5-cm margins, including examples and references. The language of the submissions and the presentations will be English and French.

Contact Person: Nabil Hathout

Web Site: http://w3.erss.univ-tlse2.fr/ParadigMo2017/

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2017

 

Meeting Description:

 

In the wake of the word-based models, specifically in connection with the word and paradigm approach introduced by Blevins (2013, 2016), the paradigmatic approach is gaining a growing support in the field of Word Formation (WF), essentially in derivation but also compounding. More and more work refers to this approach including Van Marle 1985, Stump 1991, Bochner 1993, Bauer 1997, Pounder 2000, Booij 1997, Roché & Plénat 2015, Štekauer 2014, Strnadová 2015, among others.

Paradigmatic WF is an alternative to the generative models in morphology and to binary and oriented rules. Paradigmatic models involve derivational relations that are not limited to base-derivative pairs and that may be oriented both ways or have an unspecified direction (Jackendoff 1975). Morphological paradigms are usually considered as interconnected by more or less complex networks of words, reflecting the patterns of the many relations that each word has with the others. These networks cluster into derivational families on one dimension and pile up and form analogies on the other.

Paradigm-based approaches to WF are characterized by several distinctive properties:

– The need for a strong meaning/form correlation

– The nature of the paradigmatic regularities, which (re)defines canonicity in WF

– The importance taken by derivational families and the fundamental question of their identity and their limits (unlike lexemes, families are open sets).

 

On the orthogonal dimension, we also have to figure out how morphological families are grouped into paradigms according to the properties shared by their matching relations. The paradigmatic conception of WF leads us to define structures composed of partial and overlapping networks.

 

This workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss recent proposals and advances on paradigms in WF, and in particular with respect to derivation. It constitutes a contribution to the debate and discussion on this issue, in particular the previous discussion during the two workshops organized during the 49th SLE conference (“Paradigms in Word-Formation: New perspectives on data description and modeling” and “Similarities and differences between inflectional and derivational paradigms: individual languages and beyond”).

 

The goal of ParadigMo is to identify and discuss a series of fundamental issues that underlie the principles of paradigm-based approaches to WF. These include the following:

 

– What does paradigmatic WF look like?

– What objects do we need to describe WF paradigms?

– How are semantic and formal dimensions connected within WF paradigms?

– What questions/issues/problems arise from the shift to paradigmatic WF?

 

Invited Speakers:

 

Olivier Bonami (LLF, U. Paris-Diderot & CNRS)

Gregory Stump (U. Kentucky)

 

2nd Call for Papers:

Abstracts are invited on any topic relevant to the notion of paradigms in WF, including, but not limited to, the following questions:

– What are the definitions of the notion of paradigms in WF?

– How are WF paradigms structured?

– What are the identity and limits of derivational families?

– Are there separate semantic and formal paradigms?

 

Submission:

 

Abstracts should be: in 12-points font; at most 4 pages long, including tables, figures, references; in PDF format; fully anonymous. They must be submitted at: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=paradigmo2017

Meeting Description:

The 11th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM11) will take place at the University of Cyprus (Nicosia, Cyprus) on 22-25 June 2017.

The topic of the conference is: “Morphological Variation: Synchrony and Diachrony’

The Mediterranean Morphology Meetings are a biennial conference series that brings together linguists from diverse theoretical backgrounds and at various stages of their career to discuss morphology in an inspiring, informal, interactive setting.

MMM11 aims at exploring the ways in which the morphology of languages varies, seeking deeper understanding of the principles that govern variation and new directions in modelling variation in morphological theory. We invite papers dealing with synchronic variation in any dimension. Since variation is closely intertwined with language change, we also invite contributions addressing phenomena that straddle the boundary between synchrony and diachrony. Papers discussing experimental and corpus-based methods of investigating morphological variation are especially welcome. Following the MMM tradition, in addition to the Thematic session, there will be a Free Topic session that welcomes all kinds of contributions on morphology and related disciplines.

Call Deadline: 06-Nov-2016

 

 

Meeting Description:

 

The workshop will investigate the strategies employed by the languages of the world to create complex denotations by combining two nominal (or nominalizing) elements.

 

In Germanic languages this is usually achieved through compounding (e.g. Ger. Eisen.bahn [iron.track] ‘railway’), but other languages use other constructions. Thus, Romance typically employs prepositional compounds (e.g. Fr. chemin de fer [track PREP iron] ‘railway’), while Slavic favours relational compounds (e.g. Rus. železnaja doroga [iron.ADJZ road] ‘railway’). Turkish has an izafet construction (demir.yol.u [iron.road.IZ] ‘railway’) and elsewhere possessives abound (e.g. Malagasy lala.m.by [road.PER.iron] ‘railway’). In all of these examples, the constituent meanings, the resultant meaning, and presumably also the underlying cognitive processes, are essentially identical, but the constructions are quite different. What they have in common is that they serve to name a complex concept via the combination of two “Thing-roots” (Haspelmath 2012), between which there is an unstated (or underspecified) relation. They are all binominal naming constructions (BNCs).

 

In terms of Štekauer’s model of onomasiological word-formation BNCs are Type 3 naming units, in which “the determined (actional) element is not linguistically expressed” (Štekauer 1998). This perspective prompts two further refinements to the concept of BNCs. The first is the exclusion of complex nominals of Štekauer’s Type 1 and Type 2 that contain an “Action-root”. As a consequence, synthetic compounds like truck-driver are considered out of scope. The second is based on the recognition that nominalizing affixes, like Eng. er and Slovak ica, and noun classifiers like Bora -heju (‘hole-like object’), constitute the “base” in a Type 3 complex nominal. As a consequence, adnominal nominalizations (e.g. Slovak želez.n.ica [iron.ADJZ.NMLZ] ‘railway’), and noun classifier constructions (e.g. Bora túú.heju [nose.CM(hole)] ‘nostril’), fulfil the basic criterion and are considered very much in scope.

 

This approach to complex denotation cuts across traditional boundaries between morphology and syntax, and between compounding and derivation: it “divides the cake” in a new way that might reveal new insights into language and conceptualization. The goal of this workshop is therefore to explore semantic and morphosyntactic aspects of BNCs as defined here, along with frequency, productivity, and competition between different strategies (cf. Rainer 2013), across a broad range of languages. In particular, papers are sought that investigate BNCs through:

 

– Studies of individual languages, especially lesser-studied and non-SAE languages

– Contrastive studies of languages, in particular those closely related genetically

– Typological and areal studies

– Studies that address cognitive aspects of complex nominal
