Symposium on Morphological Complexity

June 16-20, 2014

Indiana University, Bloomington


As linguists are quite aware, language can exist without significant morphological structure. In fact, morphological structure typically contributes to the overall complexity of a language. This symposium will address issues of morphological complexity from four different perspectives: cognitive computation, lexical processing, diversity and evolution, and the theory of grammar.

Invited speakers will each provide a daily lecture over the course of four days (Monday-Thursday) in each of these areas.

The fifth day (Friday) will be devoted to poster presentations in each of the four areas, followed by focus group discussion for each area.
