- Information zum Autor
3. neu bearbeitete und erweiterte Auflage
Students of English and linguistics will be able to use this book as an introduction and for preparing exams, term papers and final theses. The large number of examples is taken from a corpus of authentic language, which also serves as a basis for frequency counts of morphological features and elements in different text-types. This revised and enlarged third edition features a new chapter dealing with theoretical models of word-formation.
"Schmid's approach is in many ways a fresh and original one. The systematic use of a corpus is a very welcome innovation, ensuring that the book is well grounded in up-to-date authentic materials."
Geoffrey Leech, Emeritus Professor of English Linguistics, Lancaster University.
"Excellent! A reliable, comprehensive account with numerous 'real language' examples from corpora. Just what students need!"
Jean Aitchison, Emeritus Rupert Murdoch Professor of Language and Communication, University of Oxford.
