Topic desription:

The workshop targets the agglutinating Uralic and Turkic languages, which have a long history of contacts with each other as well as other languages in the region, such as Russian.

These languages exhibit verbal and nominal paradigms of varying complexity that present a challenge for theoretical approaches (e.g., within phonology, syntax, and language acquisition) and applications in second language learning and teaching as well as computational linguistics. 

We encourage submission of papers in all theoretical frameworks and methods of study as we aim at bringing together scholars who are interested in sharing data and problems to get a broader coverage of the morphological phenomena of these languages.

We welcome papers dealing with various aspects of Uralic and Turkic morphology. However, since the main theme of this Morphology Meeting is related to paradigms, papers that focus on paradigms are likely to attract more general public in addition to the workshop audience.
