Abstract:

Morphology is particularly challenging, because it is pervaded by irregularityand idiosyncrasy. This book is a study of word structure using a specifictheoretical framework known as 'Network Morphology'. It describes the systemsof rules which determine the structure of words by construing irregularity asa matter of degree, using examples from a diverse range of languages andphenomena to illustrate. Many languages share common word building strategiesand many diverge in interesting ways. These strategies can be understood bydistinguishing different notions of 'default'. The Network Morphologyphilosophy promotes the use of computational implementation to check theories.The accompanying website provides the computer coded version of the NetworkMorphology model of word structure for readers to test, customize and develop.This book will be a valuable contribution to the fields of linguistic typologyand morphology and will be welcomed by researchers and graduate students inthese areas.
