It's a good book, and not too expensive. It's just that's the prose is really yawn-inducingly turgid... One of the more engaging titles is: Bybee, Joan. 1985. Morphology: A study of the relation between meaning and form, Amsterdam: John Benjamins Publishing Corporation. It's also quite a lot more expensive, since it isn't introductory. Boudewijn Rempt |
