Ana R. Luis is Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Coimbra. The central focus of her research has been Portuguese inflectional morphology and cliticization, with a special interest in the morphology of Portuguese contact varieties. She has published both as author and co-author on the morphology-syntax interaction, Portuguese inflectional morphology, the morphology of creole languages, and cliticization.; Ricardo Bermudez-Otero is Senior Lecturer in Linguistics and English Language at the University of Manchester. His research focuses on the morphosyntax-phonology and phonology-phonetics interfaces, with particular attention to diachronic issues. He works predominantly on English and on Romance. His general approach to morphology is outlined in 'The architecture of grammar and the division of labour in exponence', in Trommer (ed.), The Morphology and Phonology of Exponence (OUP 2012).
