Title: Syntactic Effects of Morphological Change
Written By: David W Lightfoot
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/search/jsp/docread.jsp?k2dockey=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oup-usa.org%2Fisbn%2F0199250
Description:

This book presents the latest thinking on the nature and causes of language change. The authors consider how far changes in morphology (e.g. inflectional word endings) cause changes in syntax (e.g. word order). They examine such phenomena from the perspective of current syntactic and psycholinguistic theory, in particular addressing the issues raised by the hypothesis that grammatical change is driven by how children acquire language.
