Morphologies of Asia and Africa (2 Volumes)
Kaye, Alan S., editor
Winona Lake, Ind.: Eisenbrauns, 2007 pp. xxvi + 1380. $175.00
Description: In 1997, Eisenbrauns published the highly-regarded two-volume Phonologies of Asia and Africa, edited by Alan Kaye with the assistance of Peter T. Daniels, and the book rapidly became the standard reference for the phonologies of the Afro-Asiatic languages. Now the concept has been extended, and Kaye has assembled nearly 50 scholars to write essays on the morphologies of the same language group. The coverage is complete, copious, and again will likely become the standard work in the field. Contributors are an international Who's Who of Afro-Asiatic linguistics, from Appleyard to Leslau to Voigt.
Subjects: Methods, Linguistics
