After the success of the two previous CamCoS conferences, we are happy to announce that CamCoS 3 is going to take place on 8–10 May 2014.

The first half day will feature talks by Cambridge-based researchers, followed by a full-day general session on comparative generative syntax. The final day of the conference will feature a themed session with invited speakers on the topic of variation in the morphophonological, morphosyntactic and morphosemantic domains. 

In relation to the themed session, the central question we would like to address is to what extent it is possible to provide a formal account of cross-linguistic variation in the domain of morphology. More specifically, to the extent that there is a deeper basis to the classic morpho- logical types proposed by 19th and early 20th century philologists and anthropologist-linguists (principally, the Schlegels, Humboldt, Schleicher and Sapir), can they be captured in a princi- pled and explanatory manner? In other words, is it possible to think of morphology in parametric terms?

  • Phil Branigan (Memorial University)
