Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts
This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."
The Grammar of Words
An Introduction to Linguistic Morphology, 2nd edition
Geert Booij's popular textbook on the internal structure of words has been revised and updated. It includes a new chapter on the field's most notorious problem: the status of the word. It also has a full glossary of terms. The book covers every aspect of theory and the practical analysis of words and is the only introductory text to explore the role of morphology in processes of linguistic change and in the operations in the mind.
