Book Cover
The Handbook of Morphology

Interest in morphology has undergone rapid growth over the past two decades and the area is now seen as crucially important, both in relation to other aspects of grammar and other disciplines. The Handbook of Morphology brings together articles by authors at the forefront of this research effort. The chapters deal with traditional issues such as inflection, derivation, compounding, productivity, and various aspects of the interface question, the relationship between morphology and phonology, syntax and semantics. Other chapters offer briefer discussions of specific questions that have more recently become the focus of attention. A further set of chapters explores the role of morphology in a wider perspective: language change, psycholinguistics, and language acquisition.

The Handbook concludes with a set of morphological sketches of a typologically and genetically diverse set of languages, each illustrating one or more particularly interesting morphological traits.
