A special workshop devoted to morphological issues in Modern Greek lexicography will be held as a part of the 11th Mediterranean Morphology Meeting (MMM11). The conference is scheduled to take place in Nicosia (Cyprus), 22-25 June 2017. The specific aim of the conference workshop is to investigate morphological issues relating to lexicography of Modern Greek, both standard and dialectal.
Topics of interest to the workshop include:
(a) The interaction between morphological theories and lexicology/lexicography
(b) The role of morphology in different types of dictionaries (historical dictionaries, etymological dictionaries, dialectal dictionaries, reverse index, etc.)
(c) The use of dictionaries as a corpus for morphological analysis
(d) The insights of morphological theory into online dictionary design and implementation (e.g. what kind of morphological information should be included in dictionaries?)
(e) The discussion of specific morphological issues (such as productivity, neologisms, word families, variation in inflectional morphology) and the possible solutions given to these issues.
We believe that morphologists and lexicographers can fruitfully interact on these topics, with a view to assembling the information that needs to be included in a dictionary
