Subject: Linguistic Theory: Inflectional Morphology by G. T. Stump

Inflectional Morphology
A Theory of Paradigm Structure
Gregory T. Stump, University of Kentucky, Lexington

A new contribution to linguistic theory, this book presents a formal
framework for the analysis of word structure in human language. It
sets forth the network of hypotheses constituting Paradigm Function
Morphology, a theory of inflectional form. The book differs from other
recent works on the same subject in that it treats inflectional
morphology as an autonomous system of principles rather than as a
subsystem of syntax or phonology and it draws on evidence from a
diverse range of languages in motivating the proposed conception of
word structure.
