About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first near--exhaustive introduction to the burgeoning field of morphology in generative grammar. Presupposing very little prior kwledge of linguistics, the book guides the reader from absolute basics to the most recent theoretical developments. Written in an accessible style, and including a wealth of exercises, this textbook is designed so that it can be used either on courses explicitly focused on morphology or as an adjunct to other courses, particularly in generative syntax and in phology. The book opens with an account of the phemena studied by morphologists, an outline of classical problems and an introduction to the earliest models of morphology proposed within the generative paradigm. Its second part deals with the interface between morphology and phology and includes a detailed discussion of lexical Phology, and related models, as well as a variety of types of nconcatenative morphology. Part III begins with a comprehensive introduction to more recent theories of word structure, including inflectional morphology. Subsequent chapters examine the interface between morphology and syntax, exploring the processes which affect grammatical relations, such as passives and causatives. Further chapters examine compounding processes and the morphology, phology and syntax of clitic systems. The final part of the book includes a full discussion of bracketing paradoxes and closes with a survey of models of morphology and competing views of the place of morphology in linguistic theory.
