Many Morphologies presents original peer-reviewed and edited articles by well-known scholars approaching morphology from various frameworks. This book demonstrates the vitality of current research in morphology and the diverse approaches available when tackling morphological problems. Anyone interested in morphology and related fields will find important new ideas about the internal and external structure of words, the interaction between the lexicon and the grammar, and how we should rethink fundamental processes such as word formation. Several of the authors discuss new solutions to familiar questions such as unaccusatives, middle verbs, plural formation, and gender polarity. Others challenge our assumptions about how morphology works within the grammar as a whole. Two articles discuss the vital role of morphology in current computational linguistics projects, showing how linguistic theory is being usefully applied in this important and growing field.

The introduction to Many Morphologies by Paul Boucher (the volume editor) and Marc Plénat is available on-line, as well as the first three pages of each article. The complete table of contents is below.
