LNGS 203: Introduction to Morphology


In this course, we will consider what morphology is and its place in relation to other areas of
linguistics such as phonology and syntax. The course will also examine certain morphological
phenomena found among the world‘s languages. Topics to be discussed include the
classification of morphemes according to position, distribution and function. We will also
discuss such morphological processes as inflection, derivation, compounding, reduplication,
and other word-formation processes.
