We invite abstracts for thirty-minute talks (followed by ten minutes of discussion) on any topic that is related to opacity in phonology, morphology and syntax. Questions that the talks could address include -- but are not limited to -- the following: how can opacity be resolved in general? Are there differences between theories developed for phonology, morphology, or syntax? Is ordering of operations necessary for resolving opacity or can opacity be also derived by enhancing representations (see traces/copies in syntax; turbidity/(colored) containment/virtual phonology in phonology)? If ordering of operations is necessary, should operations apply sequentially or simultaneously; is the order intrinsic or extrinsic ('universal' or 'parochial'; Pullum (1979)); are there universal principles that determine the order of operations? If ordering is not necessary, how can opaque interactions that seem to involve ordering be reanalyzed? Are there interactions between phonological, morphological and syntactic operations (apparent or not)? Are there phenomena that tend to be opaque cross-linguistically?

Abstract guidelines:
