Word Structure, provides a complete introduction to morphology, the study of the structure of words. Word Structure:
* examines how words work as part of the language system
* encourages readers to take an objective and analytic approach
* refers to a wealth of languages, including Turkish and Latin, to illustrate points raised
* provides clear and succinct summaries at the end of each unit.
"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."
