Morphology is the study of how words are put together. A lively
introduction to the subject, this textbook is intended for
undergraduates with relatively little background in linguistics.
Providing data from a wide variety of languages, it includes
hands-on activities such as 'challenge' boxes, designed to
encourage students to gather their own data and analyze it, work
with data on websites, perform simple experiments, and discuss
topics with each other. There is also an extensive introduction to
the terms and concepts necessary for analyzing words. Unlike other
textbooks it anticipates the question 'is it a real word?' and
tackles it head on by looking at the distinction between
dictionaries and the mental lexicon. This second edition has been
thoroughly updated, including new examples and exercises as well as
a detailed introduction to using linguistic corpora to find and
analyze morphological data.
