jeu. 04/04/2019 Atelier Phonological Typology
ISH - Salle Ennat Léger

Session 5: Criteria for determining the phonological status of a pattern
In this session we will discuss various criteria which can be used to determine the phonological status of a pattern, including instrumental, phonetic, phonological, morphological, frequency/distributional, and diachronic considerations.
Guest presentations:
Thiago CHACON: "Tautosyllabic vowel sequences in Kubeo"
Magdalena LEMUS: "Phonological status of voiceless sonorants and glottalized vowels in Yukuna"

jeu. 11/04/2019 Atelier Phonological Typology
ISH - Salle Ennat Léger

Session 6: Phonology in interaction: other linguistic systems, social factors, and more
In this workshop, we will discuss some ways in which phonology can interact with other linguistic and extra-linguistic systems. In particular, we will discuss holistic typologies of language involving phonology, recent results from a project investigating the interaction between phonotactic complexity and morphology, and some social and ecological factors which have been related to phonological systems.
Guest presentations:
Minella DUZEROL: "Phoneme inventory of Martinican"
Rosa VALLEJOS with Chris KOOPS: "Word-level prosody in Kukama-Kukamiria: The interplay of stress and vowel reduction"

Direction, location and associated motion in the Yanomama verbal morphology

This paper provides an overview of the morphological expression in the Yanomama (YMA) verb of some spatially oriented categories, such as location, direction, and associated movement, with an eye on the typological and areal studies.
The discussion begins with the presentation of the YMA static location morphemes, which are mostly topographical deictic markers hosted by the verb indicating where the event takes place in relation to the speaker and to the nearest river (“downriver” and “upriver”) or to the elevation of the place where it happened (“up there” and “down there”). There are also non-deictic locational markers (“at home/in a house” and “in a forest clearing”). Despite previous claims of location morphemes being widespread in Western Amazon (Payne 1990:223), of our current knowledge, only Yagua (Payne 1995) and some Arawan languages (Dixon and Vogel 2004) seem to have a similar set of truly verbal morphemes of static location in the region.
Moving on to the next spatial notion coded by the YMA verbal morphology, we will see that directionality is strongly intertwined with the aspectual categories. Proper directional markers (with andative and venitive meanings) are used exclusively in imperfective contexts and, in clauses marked for perfectiveness, the perfective markers themselves have developed directional contrasts (also andative/venitive), much like what some neighboring Cariban languages, such as Macushi, have done (Abbott 1991; Cáceres 2010).
In the final part of this paper, we explore how the directional, locational and perfective markers are used, mostly in combination, to code the 6 associated motion (AM) contrasts in the YMA verbal morphology. Yanomama AM system is particularly interesting for the typological and areal studies for having a fairly complex system of AM distinctions (6 distinctions) in a region whose languages reportedly have simpler systems (mostly with only one category) (Guillaume 2006:28-32).

Typology of small-scale multilingualism

Small-scale multilingualism (Lüpke 2016, Singer & Harris 2016) is typical for pre-colonial societies with small socio-political groups which have no overarching hierarchical political structure joining them. The aim of the conference is to attract descriptive studies from lesser-known geographical locations and to develop a set of parameters for comparing different sociolinguistic settings across the world.

Noun categorization: from grammar to communicative interaction
Espace Marc Bloch (Centre Berthelot)

The workshop Noun Categorization: from Grammar to Communicative Interaction aims at reassessing the current typology of nominal categorization systems across the languages of the world (genders/nominal classes, classifiers of various types). Thus far, the semantic and morphosyntactic aspects of this typology have been the object of a substantial number of studies. Its pragmatic dimension, by contrast, has not drawn as much attention: what functions do these nominal categorization systems fulfill in interaction–and in discourse in particular–cross-linguistically? The workshop will focus on this pragmatic dimension, as well as a few other still poorly understood aspects of nominal categorization systems. Discussions will be based to a large extent on original data from the participants' fieldwork projects.

L'atelier Noun Categorization: from Grammar to Communicative Interaction a pour objectif de revisiter la typologie actuelle des systèmes de catégorisation nominale des langues du monde (genre/classes nominales, classificateurs divers). Les aspects sémantique et morphosyntaxique de cette typologie ont été jusqu'à présent relativement bien explorés. Sa dimension pragmatique, en revanche – c'est-à-dire la question des fonctions, notamment discursives, qu'assurent dans l'interaction linguistique ces systèmes de catégorisation nominale à travers les langues –, n'a pas fait l'objet d'autant d'attention. C'est cette dimension pragmatique, ainsi que quelques autres aspects encore mal connus de la catégorisation nominale, qui seront examinés, notamment à la lumière de données nouvelles provenant de recherches de terrain des intervenants.
