This new edition of Understanding Morphology has been fully revised in line
with the latest research. It now includes 'big picture' questions to
highlight central themes in morphology as well as research exercises for
each chapter.

Understanding Morphology presents an introduction to the study of word
structure that starts at the very beginning. Assuming no knowledge of the
field of morphology on the part of the reader, the book presents a broad
range of morphological phenomena from a wide variety of languages. Starting
with the core areas of inflection and derivation, the book presents the
interfaces between morphology and syntax and between morphology and
phonology. The synchronic study of word structure is covered as are the
phenomena of diachronic change such as analogy and grammaticalization.

Theories are presented clearly in accessible language with the main purpose
of shedding light on the data, rather than as a goal in themselves. The
authors consistently draw on the best research available, thus utilizing
and discussing both functionalist and generative theoretical approaches.

Each chapter includes a summary, suggestions for further reading, and
exercises. As such this is the ideal book for both beginning students of
linguistics, or anyone in a related discipline looking for a first
introduction to morphology.
