Message 1: An Introduction to the Study of Morphology

Date: Sat, 05 Jun 1999 10:49:36 +0200
Subject: An Introduction to the Study of Morphology

Vit Bubenik, Memorial University of Newfoundland

Each chapter (with the exception of the last one) is provided with
pertinent exercices. Its data are taken from languags the author has
been researching over the last twenty years (Latin, Greek, Turkish,
Arabic, Hebrew, Sanskrit, Russian). Its argumentation is built around
the major turning points in the history of morphology linked with
scholars such as Hockett (1954), Matthews (1974), Bybee (1985), Dressler
(1985), Bauer (1988), Spencer (1991), Carstairs-McCarthy (1992) and
Aronoff (1993). In the last chapter the author explicates a cognitively
conceived subdiscipline of Morphology in its relation to Formal Syntax,
Generative Phonology, Functional Grammar, so-called Natural Morphology,
Universal Grammar, and Typology.
