The LRFG Virtual Lab will continue to run over the summer. The lab meets Fridays, 9:00–10:30 Ottawa/Rochester time. The lab is open to outside participation. If you would like information about how to attend, please email us (best way is to email Ash at his Rochester address).
LRFG at LFG 23
We will present the paper, Modelling Exponents, at the 28th Annual Lexical-Functional Grammar Conference. The paper is co-authored by Ash Asudeh, Tina Bögel, and Dan Siddiqi. From some of our previous, unpublished work on the topic, see the presentations page.
Another LRFG paper will be presented by Oleg Belyaev in the Revisiting Lexical Integrity workshop on the third day of the conference.
MoMOT 2022 handout available
It was lots of fun to see friends and colleagues at MoMOT 2022 at UQAM! The handout for our talk, Modelling Exponents, is available on the presentations page. Check it out!
LrFG at MoMOT 2022
We are excited to be presenting our new paper, Modelling Exponents, at MoMOT in Montreal! The authors on the paper are Ash Asudeh, Tina Bögel, and Dan Siddiqi. MoMOT is hosted by Heather Newell at UQAM this year. You can find the workshop website here.
New paper version available
We have revised our paper, Morphology in LFG. Many thanks to our three reviewers! This is still not the final draft, but you can find it on the Papers page.
LFG22: Brief report
Here’s a slightly belated report on LRFG at the LFG22 conference. The hybrid conference ran from July 12–24 and was organized by Stephen Jones, who did a fantastic job. Thanks, Steve!!!
Dan and Ash presented a paper on Realizational Morphosemantics in LRFG. The paper seeks to explain why it is that some irregulars block regulars (ate/*eated, children/*childs), whereas others do not (brethren/brothers, people/persons). This is an ancient problem, but we offer a novel explanation of patterns in terms of the interplay of LRFG’s three MostInformative principles.
Berke S (U. Warsaw) gave a great paper that uses LRFG to explain the distribution and properties of Turkish suspended affixation, Analysis of Turkish Suspended Affixation in Nonverbal Coordination. A particularly noteworthy aspect of Berke’s paper is that it provides details on LRFG’s c-structure rules/constraints.
We are grateful to the conference participants for their insightful questions on both papers.
Handouts will soon be posted to the Presentations page.
Another LRFG talk at LFG22
Berke Sensekerci (University of Warsaw) is giving a talk at LFG22 called LRFG Analysis of Turkish Suspended Affixation in Nonverbal Coordination. See the LFG22 site for more details and registration info, including an online synchronous option.
We are happy to announce that our abstract has been accepted to the LFG22 Conference (July 12-14), hosted by the University of Groningen! Our paper is called Realizational Morphosemantics in LRFG and further develops the work in our recent MoMOT5 presentation. See the LFG22 site for more details and registration info, including an online synchronous option.
