Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Morphology of Dutch is an excellent blend of descriptive detail and theoretical insight. Booij provides a clear and readable overview of the facts whilst at the same time succinctly pinpointing phenomena which are of particular theoretical importance. This book will be of immense value to all those interested either in Dutch linguistics or in theoretical morphology."—Andrew Spencer, Professor of Linguistics, University of Essex

"Geert Booij here makes accessible to the general linguist the work that he and his colleagues have been doing on Dutch morphology for twenty-five years. This book is a gold mine, both for those who know the subject andfor those who are new to it. As an up-to-date overview of the morphology of a single major language, it is unsurpassed."—Mark Aronoff, Professor of Linguistics, Stony Brook
