How do learners and speakers make sense of their language and make their   language make sense?
Is it dived or dove? Dwarfs or dwarves? If the best students aced the test,   did the pretty good students beece it? You’ve probably often pondered such   questions yourself, but did you know that similar questions have inspired   some of the most important advances in our understanding not only of how   languages change but also of how children acquire grammar and how the human   mind works?

This book is designed to help readers make sense of morphological change and,   more generally, of the concept of analogy and its role in language and in   human cognition. With a critical look at the past 150 years of linguistic   work on analogical change, David Fertig brings clarity to a field rife with   terminological and theoretical confusion.

Key features
– Explains traditional and modern approaches to analogical change
– Illustrates the relevance of analogy to current linguistic and   psycholinguistic theory
– Explores the many ways that covert reanalysis can reshape grammatical   systems

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics, Morphology
