This website is about workshop on morphology. According to this site, contemporary lexicalist theories share several guiding principles including the strict separation of syntax and morphology and the rejection of derivational operations in the structural syntax: these leading ideas find expression as lexical integrity and the principle of direct syntactic encoding/monotonicity in LFG.
Crucially, in LFG it is recognised that this separation of syntax and morphology applies only to the structural domain: syntax and morphology are equal, interacting and competing contributors in the functional domain. Also it tells us about against this background, this workshop addressed a number of issues relating to the role and form of the morphological component and the morphology-syntax interface in LFG. This topic ends with the workshop autline and topics for discussion.
