Master Course Linguistics - Alec Marantz May 17, 19 & 21 2010 (UAB)
Locality in Morphology: The Domains of Allomorphy and Allosemy
When: May 17, 19 & 21 2010, 15:00-18:00
Where: Sala Actes (B7-056), Facultat de Filosofia i Lletres, UAB
Description of the course:
This course will explore key issues in word structure through an examination of allomorphy –the choice of the form of a morpheme – and allosemy – the choice of the meaning for root of a word. Where in a word can the contextual information relevant to these choices appear and do the same locality domains hold for form and for meaning?
Along with traditional linguistic data, we will consider whether new findings from neurolinguistic experiments might inform the theoretical questions.
Although the topics to be covered are at the forefront of current research in Morphology, the course should be accessible to any postgraduate student with basic knowledge of syntax and phonology.
