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
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.
