    This six-volume collection draws together the most significant contributions to morphological theory and analysis which all serious students of morphology should be aware of. By comparing the stances taken by the different schools about the important issues, the reader will be able to judge the merits of each, with the benefit of evidence rather than prejudice.

    Volume I: Word Structure: A Variety of Views
    Volume II: Morphology: Phenomena and Processes
    Volume III: Morphology and Phonology
    Volume IV: Morphology and Syntax
    Volume V: Morphology: Its Relation to Semantics and the Lexicon
    Volume VI: Morphology: Its Place in the Wider Context

    'In conclusion, this set of volumes is invaluable both empirically and theoretically. It is highly recommended not only to morphologists, but also to scholars in all other areas in linguistics ... It is not only a rich source of reference for important works in the field, but is also a thought provoking and inspiring source for much further research. It will give an opportunity for everyone to compare different approaches taken by scholars of different schools of thought.' - Linguist List
