In A-Morphous Morphology, Stephen Anderson presents a theory of word structure which relates to a full generative grammar of language. He holds word structure to be the result of interacting principles from a number of grammatical areas, and thus not localized in a single morphological component. Dispensing with classical morphemes, the theory instead treats morphology as a matter of rule-governed relations, minimizing the non-phonological internal structure assigned to words and eliminating morphologically motivated boundary elements. Professor Anderson makes the further claim that the properties of individual lexical items are not visible to, or manipulated by, the rules of the syntax, and assimilates to morphology special clitic phenomena. A-Morphous Morphology maintains significant distinctions between inflection, derivation, and compounding, in terms of their place ina grammar. It also contains discussion of the implications of this new A-Morphous position analysis of word structure.

MEDIA REVIEWS
."..Anderson's study should be required reading for every morphologist, or anyone interested in being initiated to the field. The author is one of those who has contributed greatly to its current flourishing state with his work during the past two decades." Canadian Journal of Linguistics
."..the discussions are well conducted: the line of argument and its relationships with the data on the one hand--which come from a variety of languages--and theoretical constructions on the other is clear and leaves little unassumed. ... Any linguist dealing with words should read this book: it gives a good idea of the state morphology has arrived at in the Chomskyan framework and the problems it will have to address, and it is more than likely to stimulate anyone's reflection on the fundamentals of that discipline." Canadian Journal of Linguistics
