Description - Lexical Relatedness by Andrew Spencer

Andrew Spencer argues that inflection and derivation cannot be properly distinguished and that conventional approaches to morphology are fatally flawed. He uses intermediate types of lexical relatedness in a variety of languages (including Slavic, Australian, Germanic, and Romance) to develop an enriched and morphologically-informed model of the lexical entry. He then uses this to build the foundations for a model of lexical relatedness that is consistent with
paradigm-based models. This profound and stimulating book will interest morphologists, lexicographers, and theoretical linguists more generally.
