'… 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
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 and exercises at the ends of chapters.
