|Title: The Morpheme
Subtitle: A Theoretical Introduction
Author: David Embick
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE] 31
Publisher: De Gruyter Mouton
This book develops a theory of the morpheme in the framework of Distributed Morphology. Particular emphasis is devoted to the way in which functional morphemes receive their phonological form post-syntactically, through the operation of Vocabulary Insertion. In addition to looking closely at syncretism, the primary motivation for Vocabulary Insertion, the book examines allomorphy, blocking, and other key topics in the theory of the morpheme.
