The workshop has three complementary goals. The first is to contribute to a typology of ‘splits’ that can coexist in a single system. The second is to explore the space of language-external principles that describe attested splits and shed some light on where the boundaries of possible language-internal variation may lie. The third goal is to generalize over descriptions and principles to identify whether functional or communicative considerations favour particular splits over other possible divisions of labour. The rich yet tractable variation exhibited by morphological systems provides an ideal domain for investigating language-internal splits, and the diverse morphological research communities offer a range of perspectives on this variation. The participants in the workshop are expected to represent a distinctive approach to analysing the coexistence of regular patterns and irregular residues. These approaches are united by (i) the aim of accounting for whole systems in actual use, rather than curated data sets, (ii) the goal of understanding the functions and mechanisms that contribute to the preservation of system-internal variation, and (iii) the recognition that disparate parts of a system are, in the general case, neither intrinsically 'canonical' nor 'defective'.
