Aims and scope
This series provides a broad forum for researchers working on any area of morphology, from detailed descriptive studies through to quantitative analyses, simulations and models of learning and use. Within the context of the series, the term ‘morphology’ is also construed broadly, covering a wide range of form variation, from grammatically relevant sub-phonemic contrasts to combinations of free forms with distributional or paradigmatic characteristics of morphological formations. We invite submission from correspondingly diverse descriptive and analytical traditions, including (but not restricted to):
- Implicational models derived from classical WP approaches to inflection
- Information-theoretic approaches to morphological processing and use
- Complex system conceptions of grammatical organization
- Discriminative, generative and analogical learning models
- Simulation-based approaches to system structure and change
- Quantitative perspectives on morphological typology and variation
- Detailed descriptive and philological analyses of languages and families
By bringing work within established traditions together with emerging paradigms of research in morphology, the series aims to promote cutting-edge studies that advance the understanding of the structure, learning and use of form variation in language.
To ensure the widest distribution and greatest impact, the series strongly recommends submissions in English. However, we are, in principle, able to consider submissions in German or French, particularly in the case of revised theses and dissertations.
