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


Geert Booij's well known textbook examines how phrases are shaped, compounded, and inflected in several languages. It indicates how, whilst, and why to exploit 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 thesaurus and a brand new bankruptcy at the field's so much infamous challenge: the prestige of the word.

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