Objectives: An introduction to the field of morphology. We will look at the place of morphology in linguistics. We will examine the types of morphemes, words; the nature of morphological features and the internal structures of words. We will also study the processes that create new words. We will look at various models of morphology. The analyses will be done by adopting the principles of generative grammar. Finally, we will consider morphological typology.
