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.
