Product Description

Review

'… strikes just the right balance between explaining morphology and encouraging the student to discover what it's about. Its hands-on approach is well suited to getting undergraduates interested in the subject.' S. J. Hannahs, Newcastle University

'The ideal textbook, pedagogically sound, taking beginning students all the way from the basics to advanced theoretical questions. The 'how-to' sections, the 'challenges' and the end-of-chapter exercises are all designed to encourage students to do morphology for themselves.' Laurie Bauer, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Product Description

Morphology is the study of how words are put together. A lively introduction to the subject, this textbook is intended for undergraduates with relatively little background in linguistics. Providing data from a wide variety of languages, it includes hands-on activities such as 'challenge boxes', designed to encourage students to gather their own data and analyse it, work with data on websites, perform simple experiments, and discuss topics with each other. There is also an extensive introduction to the terms and concepts necessary for analysing words. Topics such as the mental lexicon, derivation, compounding, inflection, morphological typology, productivity, and the interface of morphology with syntax and phonology expose students to the whole scope of the field. Unlike other textbooks it anticipates the question 'Is it a real word?' and tackles it head on by looking at the distinction between dictionaries and the mental lexicon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for class, not for bookshelf 2 April 2013
By Ricardo De La Torre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book really came in hand for the class it was required for, but, aside form that, I saw no reason to keep it in my personal collection.
