This book supplies the need for an authoritative account of the
morphology of Dutch in English and at the same time will make an
important contribution to current theoretical discussions of word
formation; the interactions between morphology, syntax, semantics, and
phonology; and morphological change. The author is the leading scholar
in the field.

 UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "The Morphology of Dutch is an excellent blend
of descriptive detail and theoretical insight. Booij provides a clear
and readable overview of the facts whilst at the same time succinctly
pinpointing phenomena which are of particular theoretical
importance. This book will be of immense value to all those interested
either in Dutch linguistics or in theoretical morphology."--Andrew
Spencer, Professor of Linguistics, University of Essex

 UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "Geert Booij here makes accessible to the
general linguist the work that he and his colleagues have been doing
on Dutch morphology for twenty-five years. This book is a gold mine,
both for those who know the subject andfor those who are new to it. As
an up-to-date overview of the morphology of a single major language,
it is unsurpassed."--Mark Aronoff, Professor of Linguistics, Stony
