Conference venue


Košice is a city with an eventful and illustrious past and multicultural and colourful present. It is a seat of culture and education. During the university semesters students make the city their own, and one may find them at every turn: in the theatres, the museums, the galleries, the concert halls, the libraries, and the parks. Almost nine thousand future professionals in medical, legal, scientific, social, philosophical disciplines and arts study at Pavol Jozef Šafárik University, further swelling the already large permanent population of the city of over 240,000.

Košice’s earliest documents date back to 1230 and refer to it as “Villa Cassa”. Its coat of arms is the oldest in Europe, a fact attested to by a letter dating from 1369. The city's historic sights – from various periods – are concentrated in the centre, the Urban Heritage Area. The recently reconstructed Main Street, lined by the houses and palaces of the burghers of the past, offers visitors a pleasant stroll, and is also the venue for many major events. Košice has always been known for its extraordinary mixture of cultures and dialects, a mixture that contributes greatly to the attractions of the city.

From the airport to the city centre

To reach the city centre from the airport, you can either call a taxi (see the taxi numbers listed below) or take the Bus 23 which leaves from the bus stop situated directly in front of the Arrivals hall. The journey time is 15 minutes, and the tickets can be purchased either at the ticket machines at the bus stop or from the bus driver (exact change required). See below for the detailed information:

Ticket Machines
30 minutes 0.90€
60 minutes 1.00€
oversized luggage 0.90€

Bus Driver
Only a 60-minute ticket is available (1.50€).

Your destination stop should be the Liberation Square stop – “NÁMESTIE OSLOBODITEĽOV”. The AUPARK shopping centre will be in front of you. To get to Main Street – “HLAVNÁ ULICA” – cross the road in front of you and continue straight ahead, passing the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, which is the first building on “HLAVNÁ ULICA”. The Cathedral is about a 3-minute walk from the hotel. The schedules of Bus 23 are reproduced below, and they can also be checked at https://imhd.sk/…ic-transport. Additionally, it is possible to download the app “Cestovné poriadky CP”, tap on the drop-down menu and pick MHD Košice, which will allow you to navigate Košice public transport in real time and based on your location. The links are also provided below.


From the railway or bus station to the city centre
While there is a taxi rank in front of the railway and bus stations, walking to the centre is really quite quick and easy. The historical centre, with the majority of hotels, restaurants, stores and the enchanting Main Street – “HLAVNÁ ULICA” – is only a 7 to 9-minute walk from the railway and bus stations. If arriving by train, go out of the right-most doors of the station and walk straight along the pavement in front you. If arriving by bus, walk along the front of the railway station (which will be on your right as you exit the bus terminal) to the second set of doors and turn left to walk along the pavement. As you walk, you will pass a tram stop (on your left). Continuing straight on, you will cross the road (cars don’t always stop for pedestrians at pedestrian crossings, so please be careful!) to walk down an alley of trees through the city park. You should already be able to see the cathedral tower in the distance. Once you have crossed a pedestrian bridge, you will enter Mlynská Street – “MLYNSKÁ ULICA”. As you continue straight on, you will exit Mlynská Street at the Cathedral, which is actually in the middle of Main Street – “HLAVNÁ ULICA“.
Once you have reached “HLAVNÁ ULICA“, if you turn right, you should reach the Peace Marathon Square – “NÁMESTIE MARATÓNU MIERU” – in less than 5 minutes; if you turn left, you should reach the Liberation Square – “NÁMESTIE OSLOBODITEĽOV” – in the same amount of time.
The Peace Marathon Square – “NÁMESTIE MARATÓNU MIERU is easily recognisable by a clearly visible statue of a marathon runner on the left hand side as well as by two large buildings of the East Slovak Museum (yellow and cream respectively) located on the left and right sides of the square. The Liberation Square – “NÁMESTIE OSLOBODITEĽOV” – can be recognised by a large memorial to the soldiers of World War II and the shopping centre AUPARK.

“Bryndzové halušky” (Sheep cheese dumplings) is the national Slovak dish. Sheep cheese gives a unique flavour to the meal by itself, but it is even tastier with small pieces of bacon greaves and sour cream. It is usually served with a glass of sour milk called “Žinčica”.

“Kapustnica” (Cabbage soup) is a Slovak thick sauerkraut soup traditionally prepared at the end of the year for Christmas. Kapustnica can be prepared in a lot of ways (ingredients, length of cooking, etc.) and it differs from region to region. In some regions, Kapustnica may contain smoked meat, sausages and mushrooms, in some regions it is a much simpler soup.

Fried Cheese with French Fries is a very popular Slovak/Czech dish mostly served with French fries and Tartar sauce (Tatárska omáčka) and salad.

“Lángoš” (Deep fried bread) is originally a Hungarian food but it is also a favourite take-away in Slovakia. Sometimes you’ll find it in restaurants as a starter. It is usually served with garlic, cheese, sour cream or ketchup on top (you can choose whatever ingredients you like).

“Prívarok” (Prívarok) is a typical Slovak dish, similar to soups in its consistency but much denser. It comes in many variations depending on the ingredients – pumpkins, lentils, beans, potatoes, dill, etc. It is usually consumed with a slice of bread and sausages or fried eggs might be added on top.


Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice (UPJŠ) is the second oldest university in Slovakia. The history of higher education in Košice goes back to the year 1657, when the bishop Benedict Kishdy founded the Academia Cassoviensis, which was run by the Jesuits of Jesus’ Community. The University of Košice Golden Bull issued in 1660 by the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I granted the Universitas Cassoviensis the same privileges as all the other universities of the Habsburg empire. The structure of Universitas Cassoviensis was similar to that of other universities, with faculties of Philosphy, Law and Theology, the last of these being the strongest. Study at the Philosophical Faculty was dedicated primarily to philosophy, history and languages, but the lectures – which were in Latin – also included presentations of the natural sciences: physics, mathematics, geography and botany. The Universitas Cassoviensis had its own library and a church, and it significantly influenced the advancement of science, educational attainment and spiritual culture in the 17th and 18th centuries.

In 1959 the traditions of the Universitas Cassoviensis were revived through the foundation of the Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice. It originally consisted of the Faculty of Medicine (in Košice) and the Faculty of Philosophy (in Prešov). Gradually the university was enlarged by the addition of new faculties:the Faculty of Science in Košice in 1963, the Faculty of Education in Prešov in 1964, Faculty of Law in Košice in 1973, the Faculty of Public Administration in Košice in 1998, and finally the Faculty of Arts in Košice in 2007.

Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice is the second classical university of Slovakia. It ranks among the important and widely-recognized educational and research institutions not only in Slovakia, but also in Europe. Its key mission is to provide education and service to its students and the community by spreading knowledge based on the most recent scientific findings in an international context, as well as to conduct high-quality research. The UPJŠ also supports activities contributing to the education and culture of the public and it helps students develop greater wisdom, creativity, tolerance, critical and independent thinking, self-confidence, and both regional and national awareness.

At present the UPJŠ provides education at its five faculties to almost 9,000 students in more than 105 BA, 65 MA and 35 PhD programmes, with more than 700 lecturers and research staff who use the results of their own high-quality scientific research, the most recent experimental technology, the latest ITC and innovative methods of education.

The University has mainly focused on creating a permanent system of monitoring and improving the quality of education in all the accredited study programmes. Instead of extensive generating new study programmes and increasing the number of students, the emphasis has been placed on optimising the content and methods of implementation of the existing study programmes. The university policy is to promote maximum mutual openness and connectedness of courses, so that the students may benefit from the widest range of opportunities across the university, not just within individual faculties. Improving the quality of the education provided and of the university organization has required a focus on improvement of the physical infrastructure, particularly continuous modernisation and variation of teaching technology, specifically exploiting the Internet and new information technologies.

Students can use the services of the University Library, the Centre for Information and Communication Technologies, and the Botanical Garden. The UPJŠ has more than 2,500 accommodation places, and excellent catering services located near the city centre. The Institute of Physical Education and Sports offers education in the field of sports and recreation, training courses for students, physical education camps, and hobby sports activities for staff, students and public throughout the year, also organizing such events as University Days of Sport, the Wellness Day, or the Intervention Motion Programme.

Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice has established itself in the European education and research arena. It is a member of the European University Association and a signatory of Magna Charta Universitatum. It is a seat of the European Documentation Centre, the Institute of European Law and the Austrian Library. Both education and scientific research at the UPJŠ are carried on in a broad international context and follow European trends. The research teams, led by internationally recognized personalities, use funding from both national and international sources; every year up to 200 research projects are funded (around 20 by foreign grants). The number of publications per staff member in high-quality international journals, the high proportion of papers registered in the Current Contents Connect database and the number of citations in registered databases rank the UPJŠ amongst the best research universities in Slovakia.

The development of the international dimension of the UPJŠ is closely related to the LLP/Erasmus mobility programme for staff and students and to mobility within the National Scholarship Programme of the Slovak Republic. The numbers of UPJŠ students who complete part of their studies abroad as well as the number of incoming students and staff are all growing. The UPJŠ has more than 230 Erasmus bilateral agreements with universities in 20 countries. For international Erasmus students, the International Office of UPJŠ regularly organizes EILC – Erasmus Intensive Language Courses – that enable incoming students to study the Slovak language, to understand the Slovak culture, and to become familiar with the academic milieu in Slovakia.
Pavol Jozef Šafárik University in Košice is also open to Free Movers.

X-ify, X-ific, X-ifical, Xificate, Xification, Xificatory: A stroll through history and the OED

The vocabulary of written Modern English consists largely of words that bear the traces of borrowing to an extent found in few other languages. Many word-formation patterns of the language are rooted in these borrowings. In this presentation, I explore a set of apparently related borrowed patterns, drawing on OED online: X-ify, X-ific, X-ifical, Xificate, Xification, and Xificatory. The surface similarities among these conceals a rich and sometimes surprising set of relations. Assuming Yang’s Tolerance Principle and compositionality, neither concatenation nor successive merge provides insight into the data. Only comparison between the members of individual pairs yields results. I will show that it has never been true that X-ify → X-ific → X-ifical; nor does X-ificate → X-ification; however, X-ify → X-ification → X-ficatory. These findings have broad implications.

Going back to my roots: Can we get rid of zero morphemes?

Creemers et al. (2018) proposes a theory of derivational affixes that aims at (i) preserving the insights of lexical morphology regarding the order and phonological properties of affixes, and (ii), sticking to the Separation Hypothesis and preserving the insights of Distributed Morphology. One of the more embarrassing aspects of the proposed theory is the free use of zero-affixes. Borer (2014: 322) formulates this problem as follows: “all such models [using zero-affixes, JD] perforce divorce morpho-phonological complexity from morphological, syntactic, or morpho-syntactic complexity”. In this paper I address the use of zero-affixes and the treatment of conversion, aiming at a zero-less theory of derivational morphology.

Idioms in word-formation

Idiomaticity is a pervasive feature of language: “there is so much of it in every language” (Weinreich 1969). Weinreich also links idiomaticity to morphology when he says “Like many facts of word-formation (cf. Zimmer, 1964), idiomaticity serves to remind us how heavily language is laden with semi-productive patterns.” It is this connection, between word-formation and idiomaticity that will be the topic of this presentation. I will try to explain why it makes sense to talk about ‘morphological idioms’, depending on how we define idioms, and discuss its consequences.

Compounds in translation and interpreting.
A study of English and German based on a multimodal parallel corpus

One of the most striking differences between English and German in the domain of the lexicon concerns the form and use of nominal compounds (cf. König & Gast 2018: Ch. 8 for an overview). While compounds in English are mostly identified on the basis of prosodic or semantic properties (Marchand 1969, Plag 2003), German in addition uses morphological signals to indicate compounding (Fuhrhopp 1998). Moreover, compounds in German are often complex, while English compounds rarely comprise more than two components. These differences lead to well-known difficulties in second language acquisition (e.g. Zeldes 2018) and translation (e.g. Berg 2017).
In this study, the contrastive analysis of nominal compounds is approached using a triangular translation corpus, which contains original speeches from the European Parliament with their online as well as offline translations (interpretations and written translations). This corpus allows us to compare online and offline translations of the same input, and to make inferences concerning the bilingual processing of compounds under different types of input and output constraints.
Preliminary inspection of the data shows striking differences between online and offline translations (see Table 1). Three major types of differences can be observed in German translations of English speeches: (i) omission in the online translation (e.g. networking site), (ii) use of a loanword corresponding to the English original (e.g. Genozid vs. Völkermord), and (iii) use of a (non-idiomatic) syntactic phrase (e.g. Kosten des Krieges vs. Menschenleben). In the particular speech from which the examples in Table 1 were taken, only two compounds are found in both online and offline translations, Sicherheitsrat (‚United Nations Security Council‘) and Rassenhass (‚racial hatred‘). Both of these words were highly salient in the particular context of the speech, a commemoration of the Srebrenica massacre.
The triangular corpus allows us not only to identify categorial differences between translation strategies like those mentioned above, but also to study time lags (reaction times) associated with these strategies, in relation to factors such as frequency of occurrence and activation in a given context. In my talk I will present results obtained on the basis of a corpus of a few dozen of speeches, both English translated into German and German translated into English.

Compounding as a window to morphological knowledge and the mental representation of words

Compounding is an extremely widespread and productive word formation process. I present evidence that compound morphology is modulated by patterns of use across the lifespan which can convert free-standing words into positionally-bound compound constituents. I present a model of compound representation and processing that captures the time-course of compound constituent activation and the manner in which that activation can be in competition with the activation of corresponding free-standing words. I demonstrate how the model is supported by evidence in the existing literature as well as by written production data we have obtained for compound typing in English, German, and French.

Polysynthetic verb morphology in Ket

As the sole survivor of Central Siberia’s Yeniseian family, Ket is typologically and genealogically distinct from all other Inner Eurasian languages. Finite verb structure displays each of the three hallmark features of polysynthesis: holophrasis, incorporation, and a discontinuous lexical stem. This presentation describes how Ket specifically realizes each of these features in certain ways that are rather typical for a strongly head-marking language, but also in other ways that are much more unusual cross-linguistically, even among polysynthetic languages. The latter includes idiosyncratic lexical constraints on which verbs can incorporate secondary heavy lexical material, the presence of highly marked affix order configurations in the template, as well as the remarkable prevalence of multiple exponence in subject and object marking patterns.



Title: Onomatopoeia
Date: 24 June 2022
Contact: Livia Körtvélyessy, livia.kortvelyessy@upjs.sk

If we ask two linguists of divergent theoretical background about the nature of the word cuckoo, we might face two different worlds. While in the English linguistic tradition this word is categorized as onomatopoeia, its Slovak equivalent kukučka is at most of onomatopoeic origin but definitely not onomatopoeia itself. The relate onomatopoeia kukuk is treated as an interjection. These contradictions suggest that the comprehension of onomatopoeia is not universal. Theories of onomatopoeia (if available) seem to be, similarly to onomatopoeia itself, language specific. In addition, there is no in-depth analysis of the relation between onomatopoeia and other iconic phenomena, such as ideophones, phonosthemes, etc. Any description of the state-of-the-art of onomatopoeia should take into account two basic issues – its relation to the phenomenon of sound symbolism and its status with regard to the Saussurean concept of arbitrariness.
The workshop’s aim is to discuss various approaches to any of the above-mentioned topics. Papers focused on a cross-linguistic comparison of the phenomena in question are most welcome.

Abstracts: Please send the abstracts (300 words max) to Livia Kortvelyessy (livia.kortvelyessy@upjs.sk) by April 30, 2022. The information about acceptance will be available by May 10, 2022.


Title: Towards a competition-based word-formation theory
Date: 24 June 2022
Contact: Vincent Renner, vincent.renner@univ-lyon2.fr

Convenors: Alexandra Bagasheva (Sofia), Akiko Nagano (Shizuoka), Vincent Renner (Lyon)
Description:The study of linguistic competition, or rivalry, has recently gained heightened interest in the word-formation literature (see e.g. Santana-Lario & Valera, 2017, and Rainer et al., 2019) and elements of a competition-based morphological theory have appeared in e.g. Mark Aronoff's recent work on competitive exclusion (see e.g. Aronoff 2016, 2019). This workshop aims to build on this dynamic and bring together scholars eager to link their latest findings to theoretical considerations such as the various forms of competition resolution, their underlying mechanisms and plausible motivations, as well as a possible lack of resolution (in the long run) and plausible reasons for that. Important topics include macro-level competition between different word-formation processes (like the competition between conversion and affixation or that between blending and compounding) and more systemic considerations (see e.g. Renner, 2020). Equally welcome are papers adopting a long diachronic perspective and those following a contrastive approach. This list of topics and approaches is neither exhaustive, nor restrictive.

Title: Theoretical and empirical descriptions of conversion/zero-affixation
Date: 23 June 2022
Contact: Cristina Fernández-Alcaina, alcaina@ufal.mff.cuni.cz, Salvador Valera svalera@ugr.es
Convenors: Cristina Fernández-Alcaina, Salvador Valera

After a good two decades when only a stronghold of very few morphologists defended or even considered the possibility of derivational zeroes (cf. Don 2005), zero-affixation has recently taken the stage of workshops at international conferences again, both past (Iordăchioaia & Melloni, SLE 2020) and to come (Vasile, forthcoming). The discussion aroused by these and other events as well as by recent publications on the issue (e.g. Dahl & Fábregas 2018) has taken the form of revisions, both theory-oriented, e.g. in Gaeta (2013) or ten Hacken (2019), and data-driven, e.g. in Melloni & Iordăchioaia (2020) or Ševčíková (2021), and brings to the fore past controversies and renewed insights on the process and on its most adequate interpretation.
This workshop presents contributions on conversion/zero-derivation in the two regards, theoretical and empirical. Following Jan Don’s plenary lecture Going back to my roots: Can we get rid of zero morphemes? , this workshop presents theoretical and empirical contributions by:
