13th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting
The Mediterranean Morphology Meeting is 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, and interactive setting.
The 13th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM13) will take place on May 19-22, 2022, organized by the Department of Mediterranean Studies, University of the Aegean, on the island of Rhodes (Greece). The conference will be live with in-person participation. There is a thematic session and an open session
The topic of the thematic day will be:
“Comparing morphologies: Typological generalizations at work”
Although morphology figures regularly in typological studies, it also also true that it “receives relatively little attention from typologists”, since it is “the most language-speciﬁc and hence least generalizable” domain (Baerman and Corbett 2007: 115). Still, generalizing over language-specific observations is crucial for understanding how languages work, how (much) they vary and what they have in common.
For the MMM13 thematic session, we invite papers on any aspect of the grammar of words that aim at identifying new typological generalizations or testing existing ones. We therefore encourage broader cross-linguistic studies as well as typologically-informed work based on one or more individual languages. Submissions shedding light on lesser known areas of morphology are especially welcome. The call is open to papers from any methodological or theoretical angle.
For the open session, papers on any morphological topic are welcome.
