Reviews

This is a solid work, which nevertheless moves along at a brisk pace and points at many further issues that could be fruitfully studied in follow-up work...we can thoroughly recommend this work. * The Year's Work in English Studies * carefully edited...a well-balanced overview of the major issues in morphology while serving at the same time both a pedagogical and a descriptive purpose in a field in which textbooks have for a long time been rare. * AnaDyaz-Negrillo and Salvador Valera Hernandez, English Language and Linguistics * Review from previous edition Well-organized and written, coherent and clear.... Covers a great range of morphological concepts, patterns and issues. * Linguist List * THE - Textbook Guide round up 08/11/2012
