This volume consists of selected and revised papers from the Seventh International Morphology Meeting, held in 1996 in Vienna. It presents advances in morphological theorizing, such as the foundations of sign-based morphology, the morphology-syntax interface, the boundaries between compounding and derivation, derivation and inflection, and the emergence of morphology from premorphological precursors in early first-language acquisition. The contributions deal with morphological analyses in various fields of the ever-widening domain of morphology and its relevance to the lexicon.
The comparative aspect is reflected in the above-mentioned areas, and through the variety of languages investigated: Indo-European and non-Indo-European languages of Europe, and Asian, African and American languages. This breadth allows valuable insights into current problems of morphological research in America, Western and Eastern Europe.

Subject index
“[...] a wealth of fresh data from a wide range of languages with interesting discussions of different theoretical approaches and solutions in a lively, but not vitriolic, argumentative style, so that it can be regarded as a welcome contribution towards the integration of theoretical and typological lines of research in the field of morphology.”
“The volume not only presents a wealth of new data and observations, but also includes much high-level theoretical debate and comparison of different approaches to morphology.”
