Beschreibungen

This volume focuses on detailed studies of various aspects of Construction Morphology, and combines theoretical analysis and descriptive detail. It deals with data from several domains of linguistics and contributes to an integration of findings from various subdisciplines of linguistics into a common model of the architecture of language. It presents applications and extensions of the model of Construction Morphology to a wide range of languages. Construction Morphology is one of the theoretical paradigms in present-day morphology. It makes use of concepts of Construction Grammar for the analysis of word formation and inflection. Complex words are seen as constructions, that is, pairs of form and meaning. Morphological patterns are accounted for by construction schemas. These are the recipes for coining new words and word forms, and they motivate the properties of existing complex words. Both schemas and individual words are stored, and hence there is no strict separation of lexicon and grammar. In addition to abstract schemas there are subschemas for subclasses of complex words with specific properties. This architecture of the grammar is in harmony with findings from other empirical domains of linguistics such as language acquisition, word processing, and language change.

Geert Booij is emeritus professor of linguistics at the University of Leiden, and the author of a large number of articles and books on phonology and morphology.  His present research focuses on theories of the architecture of grammar, in particular Construction Morphology. He is a founder and former editor of the journal Morphology and its predecessor, the series Yearbook of Morphology.  He is an honorary member of the Linguistic Society of America.

The first volume  with applications and extensions of the model of Construction Morphology to a wide range of languages Deals with data from various domains of linguistics, thus contributing to a graceful integration of findings from various sub-disciplines of linguistics into a common model of the architecture of languageProvides inspiration for further research on the morphological aspects of languageOffers deeper insight in how to deal with morphology in Construction Grammar approaches to language
