 The Yearbook of Morphology 1996 focuses on the relationship
between morphology and psycholinguistics. Basic questions such as the
following are discussed. To what extent does the morphological
structure of a word play a role in its perception and production? Are
regular complex words created anew each time they are used, or are
they stored in the lexicon? The relevant evidence comes from a variety
of European languages. Another important theme in this yearbook is the
degree of autonomy of morphology: in which respect does it differ from
other modules of the grammar? The present yearbook also contains
articles on periphrasis, the nature of inflectional morphology and
syncretism in derivational morphology.
