Editorial Reviews


"[The Grammar of Words] is successful in achieving the purpose of providing reinforcement, practice, and training in linguistic description, and developing autonomous thinking. Although The Grammar of Words is presented as an introductory textbook to morphology, it is likely to be cited regularly in research publications. This book offers a well-balanced overview of the major issues in morphology while serving at the dame time both a pedagogical and a descriptive purpose in a field in which textbooks have for a long time been rare." --English Language and Linguistics
