Introducing Linguistic Morphology 2ND Editionby Laurie Bauer
Synopses & Reviews
A newly expanded and updated edition of one of the best-selling introductions to linguistic morphology--the study and description of word formations in languages--that deals with inflection, derivation, and compounding, and the system of word-forming elements and processes in a language. Basic concepts are introduced, with an abundance of examples from a range of familiar and exotic languages, followed by a discussion of, among other topics, the definition of word-form, productivity, inflection versus derivation, and the position of morphology to phonology. Along with two new chapters discussing morphology and the brain and how morphology arises, changes, and disappears, this new edition includes exercises and a glossary of key terms.
