Title: Yearbook of Morphology 2003
Edited By: Geert Booij
Jaap van Marle
Series Title: Yearbook of Morphology
Description:

A revival of interest in morphology has occurred during recent years. The
Yearbook of Morphology series, published since 1988, has proven to be an
eminent support for this upswing of morphological research, since it
contains articles on topics which are central in the current theoretical
debates, and which are frequently referred to. Thus it has set a standard
for morphological research.

In the Yearbook of Morphology 2003 a large number of articles is devoted to
the phenomenon of complex predicates consisting of a verb preceded by a
preverb. Such complex predicates exhibit both morphological and syntactic
behaviour, and thus form a testing ground for theories of the relation
between morphology and syntax. Evidence is presented from a wide variety of
languages including Germanic, Romance, Australian, and Uralic languages. A
number of articles present historical evidence on the change of preverbal
elements into prefixes. Topics such as grammaticalization, constructional
idioms, and derivational periphrasis are also discussed.

In addition, this Yearbook of Morphology contains articles on morphological
parsing, and on the role of paradigmatical relations in analogical change.

Written for:
Theoretical, descriptive, and historical linguists, morphologists,
phonologists, computational linguists, and psycholinguists
