The purpose of this conference is to investigate the relationship between morphology and syntax, and in particular to investigate the extent to which morphological generalizations can be accounted for in terms of purely syntactic operations and conditions. Specific questions that could be addressed include the following:

Is there a need for a morphological component?
Is there a need for post-syntactic morphological operations?
How are morphemes combined with stems? By head movement, phrasal movement, affix hopping, morphological merger?
What is the status of competition and blocking?
How can suppletion and allomorphy be accounted for in syntactic terms?
How can syncretism be accounted for in syntactic terms?
To what extent can derived nominals be accounted for in syntactic terms?
What is the status of traditional terms such as affixinfixwordboundcompound in syntactic approaches to morphology?
How are features like gender, noun class and declension class represented syntactically?
