Review:

"This characteristic of the book particularly recommendsit for teaching, as it is often the case that undergraduatestudents are reluctant to engage in argumentation and favorprescriptive contents. This book manages to lure the student intothinking and arguing rather than learning definitions." (Anglistik, 2 September 2012)

"The intended audience is undergraduate students in linguisticsbut the text is accessible enough for a person from a generalaudience wanting to understand the basic concepts in morphologicaltheory and practice in linguistics." (Linguist, 25 June 2011)

"Aronoff and Fudeman have produced a clear and jargon-freeintroduction to contemporary morphological theory and practice. Thebook succeeds particularly in clarifying the empirical content, organizational principles and analytic techniques that distinguishmorphology from other areas of linguistics."
--James P. Blevins, University of Cambridge

From the Back Cover:

Assuming only themost basic background in linguistics, What is Morphology?provides a concise, critical introduction to the central ideas andperennial problems of morphology. Designed to familiarize beginningstudents and specialists alike with the importance of morphology asa subject of research, this reader-friendly volume movesorganically from the morphological "facts of everydaylife" to important relationships with phonology, syntax, andsemantics.

This second editionbuilds on the previous one, expanding chapters on morphologicalproductivity and the mental lexicon, and adding coverage ofexperimental and computational methods. Aronoff and Fudeman haverevised and expanded the exercises and added suggestions forfurther reading to each chapter. Data from Kujamaat Joola, a WestAfrican language, is used throughout the book to explain andclarify new ideas presented. What is Morphology? equipsreaders with the skills to analyze a wealth of classicmorphological issues through engaging narration and by directexample.
