Morphology is the study of linguistic forms, or rather, of the stems
and inflected forms of words. This handbook, containing contributions
written in English and German, informs the reader on fundamental
concepts and theoretical approaches of the discipline and on
morphological structures of diverse languages. It represents the
current state of the art in morphology in a comprehensive fashion at a
general level and is illustrated with many examples. Priority is given
to a thorough explanation of established concepts and insights,
complemented, where necessary, by an unbiased report on alternative
problem solutions.

Processes and Paradigms in Word-Formation Morphology presents a
comprehensive process-based model of word-formation morphology, with
emphasis on the construct of the paradigm and on semantics. A detailed
empirical investigation of German adjective formation tests the
applicability of the model in both synchronic and diachronic
dimensions.

The diachronic study attempts to distinguish system-internal and
system-external causes for change, exploring the possibility that
language standardization can have far-reaching effects on linguistic
systems. The book thus combines a formal ap-proach to word-formation
morphology with considerations of relevant extra-linguistic phenomena.
