WOMP 2024

The first meeting of the Workshop On Morphology at Princeton (WOMP 2024) will be held on March 22-23, 2024, at Princeton University.

This inaugural WOMP is the second installment of a successful workshop held in spring 2023 at Penn State University, Externalizing Words, and will continue in the same vein, with a broad theme of “realization” (the nature of the post-syntax, late insertion, linearization, the syntax-phonology interface, etc.).

WOMP will feature invited talks as well as a poster session for early career scholars. The workshop will be held in person, though a virtual option for live streaming the talks will be made available as well. Registration is free, but is required for attending in person and/or for receiving the live-streaming link.

See below for more details, including the presenter line-up, the schedule (now with downloadable handouts, slides, and posters!), information about traveling to Princeton, and information about WOMP Proceedings papers at Continua.

WOMP Proceedings

Continua is a new Open Access, peer-reviewed academic journal whose contributions explore aspects of the mental lexicon, the conceptualizations of ‘words’, and the intersection of morphological phenomena with phonological, semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic factors. We welcome the submission of articles and/or squibs from WOMP for publication consideration, as well as submissions from WOMP attendees who work on these topics. If you are interested in submitting to Continua, please see our submission guidelines, which can be found here.
