The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Geert Booij's popular textbook on the structure of words has been revised and updated in a third edition. The book covers every aspect of morphological theory and the analysis of words. It is the only introductory text to explore the role of morphology in language processing and language change, and also deals with the relation between morphology and other modules of grammar.
