The MorPhoVa workshop brings together researchers whose work examines variation in phonological systems and phenomena at the morpho-phonology interface.  Speakers will discuss variation (geographical, generational, etc.) in Breton, Friulian, Italo-Roman, Arabic, Gallo, Dutch and others. We will compare various theoretical models and discuss future goals for projects aiming to capture vanishing and burgeoning variation.

All are welcome to attend; to register, please contact Connor Youngberg (connor.youngberg@univ-nantes.fr).
