Abstract:

Many Morphologies presents new peer-reviewed and edited articles by
well-known scholars approaching morphology from various
frameworks. This book demonstrates the vitality of current research in
morphology and the diverse approaches available when tackling
morphological problems. Anyone interested in morphology and related
fields will find important new ideas about the internal and external
structure of words, the interaction between the lexicon and the
grammar, and how we should rethink fundamental processes such as word
formation. Several of the authors discuss new solutions to familiar
questions such as unaccusatives, middle verbs, plural formation, and
gender polarity. Others challenge our assumptions about how morphology
works within the grammar as a whole. Two articles discuss the vital
role of morphology in current computational linguistics projects,
showing how linguistic theory is being usefully applied in this
important and growing field.

The full introduction and the first 3 pages of each article can be
found on our web site at http://www.cascadilla.com/manym.html along
with easy on-line ordering and details on all of our linguistics
titles.
