 The strict separation of syntax and morphology along with the rejection of
 derivational operations in structural syntax are two of several principles
 in contemporary lexicalist theories. The syntactic theory of
 Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG) recognizes that this separation between
 syntax and morphology applies only to a structural domain but also that
 both are equal, interacting, and competing contributors in a functional domain.
 This book discusses the role of morphology in LFG, reintroducing two
 seminal papers on the impact of the development of LFG on morphology, while
 presenting new papers on current morphological issues. Theoretical issues
 addressed include the relationship between synthetic and analytic exponents
 of functional features; the need for a separate projection of m-structures;
 the nature of morphosyntactic paradigms; optimality theory's role in LFG
 morphology; and the use of LFG architecture in morphological description.
