    Yearbook of Morphology 2001

    edited by

    Open Universiteit, Heerlen, The Netherlands


    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 which are frequently referred to.
    In the Yearbook of Morphology 2001 a number of articles is devoted to the
    notion of productivity, and the role of analogy in coining new words. In
    relation to this topic, constraints on affix ordering in a number of
    Germanic languages are investigated.
    A second topic of this volume is the necessity and the role of the paradigm
    in morphological analyses; arguments for and against the formal role of the
    paradigm are presented.
    Thirdly, this volume discusses a number of general issues in morphological
    theory such as the relation between form and meaning in morphology, the
    accessibility of the internal morphological structure of complex words, and
    the interaction of morphology and prosody in truncation processes.
    Audience: Theoretical, descriptive, and historical linguists,
    morphologists, phonologists, computational linguists, and psycholinguists
    will find this book of interest.
