Title: The Grammar of Words
Subtitle: An Introduction to Linguistic Morphology
Written By: Geert Booij
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-925847-3
Description:

This is an introduction to the grammar of words. Geert Booij introduces the
basic methods of morphological analysis and shows how these can be used to
reveal how words are formed, compounded, and inflected in different
languages. He then describes the relationship of morphology to syntax,
phonology, and semantics, and shows how the main aspects of grammar
interact to make languages work. He ends by examining the universal
characteristics of morphology. He discusses the ways in which these reflect
the organization of the mind's language faculty and considers whether they
throw light on the way languages change and are learned.
