Dissecting Morphological Theory: Diminutivization

This workshop series scrutinizes and compares theoretical assumptions in morphology. Diminutivization serves as a testing ground. The goal is to provide a platform for fruitful discussion among scholars working within different theoretical frameworks as well as computational and experimental morphologists. The workshops are held in conjunction with different international conferences.
