Morphology is particularly challenging, because it is pervaded by irregularity
and idiosyncrasy. This book is a study of word structure using a specific
theoretical framework known as 'Network Morphology'. It describes the systems
of rules which determine the structure of words by construing irregularity as
a matter of degree, using examples from a diverse range of languages and
phenomena to illustrate. Many languages share common word building strategies
and many diverge in interesting ways. These strategies can be understood by
distinguishing different notions of 'default'. The Network Morphology
philosophy promotes the use of computational implementation to check theories.
The accompanying website provides the computer coded version of the Network
Morphology model of word structure for readers to test, customize and develop.
This book will be a valuable contribution to the fields of linguistic typology
and morphology and will be welcomed by researchers and graduate students in
these areas.
