Title: The Handbook of Morphology
Edited By: Andrew Spencer
Arnold M. Zwicky
URL: http://www.blackwellpub.com/asp/book.asp?ref=0631185445
Description:

Interest in morphology has undergone rapid growth over the past two decades
and the area is now seen as crucially important, both in relation to other
aspects of grammar and in relation to other disciplines. The Handbook of
Morphology brings together articles by authors at the forefront of this
research effort. The chapters deal with traditional issues such as
inflection, derivation, compounding, productivity, and various aspects of
the interface question, the relationship between morphology and phonology,
syntax and semantics. Other chapters offer briefer discussions of specific
questions that have more recently become the focus of attention. A further
set of chapters explores the role of morphology in a wider perspective:
language change, psycholinguistics, and language acquisition.


The Handbook concludes with a set of morphological sketches of a
typologically and genetically diverse set of languages, each illustrating
one or more particularly interesting morphological traits.
