Description - The Morphology of Dutch by Geert Booij

This book provides the first fully-fledged description of the morphological system of Dutch written in English. Inflection, derivation, and compounding are each discussed in separate chapters, following a short exposition of the theoretical framework of the book. The interaction of morphology with phonology and with syntax is dealt with subsequently. The chapters also provide access to more detailed studies of Dutch that have appeared in the international literature. This book shows that the morphology of Dutch poses many interesting descriptive and theoretical challenges, and that its detailed analysis can contribute to ongoing theoretical discussions on the nature of word formation processes, the relation between syntagmatic and paradigmatic structure, rule-base versus constraint-based grammar, and the interface between morphology, phonology, syntax, and semantics. The book will be of relevance to students of Germanic languages, general linguists, typologists, computational linguists, and psycholinguists.
