The Grammar of Words: An Introduction to Linguistic Morphology (Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics)


Geert Booij's renowned textbook examines how phrases are shaped, compounded, and inflected in several languages. It indicates how, while, and why to take advantage of tools of morphological research and explains how morphology pertains to syntax, phonology, and semantics. the writer considers the common features of morphology and the way those are mirrored within the workings of brain. The revised variation has been revised and up to date all through; it has a whole word list and a brand new bankruptcy at the field's so much infamous challenge: the prestige of the word.

'The Grammar of phrases through Geert Booij covers a huge variety of issues from structural inquiries to psycholinguistic matters and difficulties of language switch. This advent to morphology is thorough and available and, like different works via this well known writer, in particular robust at exhibiting the importance of empirical proof for theoretical reasoning.'
