Industry Reviews

"This book gives a good introduction to the essentials of morphology, presented in a straightforward manner without unnecessary technicalities. It nicely conveys much of the richness of word structure across the world's languages at the same time as arousing the reader's curiosity about how words got the way they are." -Andrew Spencer, University of Essex
