The Third International Arbitrated Conference on the topic:

Interface in contemporary linguistic research:

 Issues, manifestations, and intersections

Errachidia, Morocco on December 13-14, 2023 

Preamble

     The presumptive boundaries nature between the fields of phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics mostly present confusing questions in contemporary linguistic research. In their unique conceptualisation separating linguistic components, the American structuralisms refuse the syntactical datum and morphological facts in the phonetics domain as an example. The idea of the language interfaces has emerged from the dissatisfaction expressed in modern linguistic research that has concerned the strict separation between the different levels perceived in the study of language or between the subsystems, which form our own cognition.

  As a result, the generative grammar, within the minimalist program framework, has suggested the interface in order to describe the case of the two levels of representation recognised in the program: the logical form and the phonetic form. The interface role is to link between linguistic representations and interpretation in other places: interfaces with the conceptualisation systems of perception, interfaces with pronunciation and perceptual systems of speech production and speech perception.

       The conference “Interface in Contemporary Linguistic Research” seeks to discover how the basic components of linguistic faculty interact which each other. It also examines how these interactions are reflected in linguistic and cognitive theory. Additionally, it looks at what language processes reveal in the human mind and its reverberation in expression and communication. Hence, the conference central question is: to what extent phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics share the same theoretical vocabularies, and foundations? Is it true that the related domains with morphosyntactic restrictions convert with related domains with phonological restrictions and phonetic outputs?

Such conference aims at clarifying the evolution in internal interfaces between the linguistic learning levels; this happens through conceptual visions and different theoretical perspectives. It focuses on various linguistic issues and opens the horizon to present the arguments and proofs addressed by the investigations in different human languages. If the issues of linguistic researches vary in accordance with their epistemological start and cognitive roots variations, then the study of the distinctive features of different expression parts with the different types reflect the existence of interfacial levels between different linguistic levels on one hand, and linguistics in general and other sciences, on the other. This reflects the importance of studying the manifestations of these external interfaces in terms of interstudy (between specialities) and shed light on the different aspects of the possible correlations between these investigations.

Themes of the Conference:

Theme 1: Interface and correlation:

It concerns the correlation of interface hypothesis in contemporary linguistics with the complementary theory between the linguistic course levels in ancient Arabic linguistic heritage and complementarity between linguistic sciences and other sciences of Islamic Arabic heritage, which is a methodical complementation established by the first tendencies of the interfaces idea.

Theme 2: Interface and Features:

It is related to the encounter of the different subfields of linguistics with the distinctive features: the research will show whether the feature notion may be understood in a unified way in most linguistic subfields.

Theme 3: The Interface and Sound:

It concerns the interfaces between phonology and phonetics, phonology and morphology, phonology and syntax, phonology and semantics.

Theme 4: Interface and Structure

It concerns the interaction of syntax with morphology, semantics and lexicon, and explores the position of word and its representational case in human mind.

Theme 5: Interface and meaning

It reconsiders the syntax and semantics interface from the perspective of syntax, and studies the issues related to prosody, discourse and context.

In addition, it is widely known that the interface of syntax and semantics (also known as the syntax and lexical semantics interface) addresses the interaction between syntactical and semantic structures, including aspects related to both syntax and semantics in order to explain the connectives between form and meaning.

Theme 6: Interface and General Architectural Issues:

It concerns universal rules, unitary model of language, and linguistic theories of language and perception that are related to it.

Theme 7: Interface and language Acquisition:

It focuses on the interface hypothesis of language acquisition.

Theme 8: The External Interface:

Each recognised hypothesis between language and meaning, and language and thought leads to talking about the interface between linguistics and other sciences:

  1. Linguistics and human sciences (psychology, sociology …)
  2. Linguistics and real sciences (mathematical linguistics, neuoroscience linguistics …)
  3. Linguistics and philosophy, linguistics and logic, linguistics and music science …
  4. Linguistics, legal and economic sciences (criminal linguistics, linguistics and economy …)
