This book is the second edition of a highly successful introduction to the study of word-formation, that is, the ways in which new words are built on the bases of other words (e.g. happy - happy-ness), focusing on English. The book's didactic aim is to enable students with little or no prior linguistic knowledge to do their own practical analyses of complex words. Readers are familiarized with the necessary methodological tools to obtain and analyze relevant data and are shown how to relate their findings to theoretical problems and debates. The second edition incorporates new developments in morphology at both the methodological and the theoretical level. It introduces to the use of new corpora and data bases, acquaints the reader with state-of-the-art computational algorithms modeling morphology, and brings in current debates and theories.

This book presents a comprehensive and critical overview of historical phonology as it stands today. Scholars from around the world consider and advance research in every aspect of the field. In doing so they demonstrate the continuing vitality and some continuing themes of one of the oldest sub-disciplines of linguistics. The book is divided into six parts. The first considers key current research questions, the early history of the field, and the structuralist context for work on segmental change. The second examines evidence and methods, including phonological reconstruction, typology, and computational and quantitative approaches. Part III looks at types of phonological change, including stress, tone, and morphophonological change. Part IV explores a series of controversial aspects within the field, including the effects of first language acquisition, the status of lexical diffusion and exceptionless change, and the role of individuals in innovation. Part V considers theoretical perspectives on phonological change, including those of evolutionary phonology and generative historical phonology. The final part examines sociolinguistic and exogenous factors in phonological change, including the study of change in real time, the role of second language acquisition, and loanword adaptation. The authors, who represent leading proponents of every theoretical perspective, consider phonological change over a wide range of the world's language families. The handbook is, in sum, a valuable resource for phonologists and historical linguists and a stimulating guide for their students.

The architecture of the human language faculty has been one of the main foci of the linguistic research of the last half century. This branch of linguistics, broadly known as Generative Grammar, is concerned with the formulation of explanatory formal accounts of linguistic phenomena with the ulterior goal of gaining insight into the properties of the 'language organ'. The series comprises high quality monographs and collected volumes that address such issues. The topics in this series range from phonology to semantics, from syntax to information structure, from mathematical linguistics to studies of the lexicon.

For British spellings focusing on KS2 curriculum requirements. This colourful, fun book is ideal for kids (including dyslexics) who are struggling with spelling and phonics by systematically focusing on areas that other spelling books and schemes ignore:  improving visual memory,  using memory tricks,  noticing letter patterns,  knowing spelling rules & exceptions,  building words with prefixes and suffixes,  understanding the history of spelling and why spelling is the way it is. Using a combination of well-known, proven literacy techniques and spelling strategies, this book will help kids learn, remember, and improve their spellings while reinforcing and building: * spelling knowledge, * confidence, * love of spelling and writing. The book is a great resource for teachers and tutors, too, because it explains why these "tricky" spellings are the way they are, including the rules and history of them - so you can answer those awkward questions about them. The book also provides some great ideas for exercises, group work, and games in the classroom. Reviews/feedbackGraham J Spooner of The Sensible Tuition CompanyI enjoyed reading through the first little section actually with the 'tricks and tips' for how to develop your spelling. This is exactly the sort of thing that my students are asking me for advice on regularly - and there are a lot of things in here that I know will be directly useable in lessons. I like the gap filling exercises - again, something like this makes the book a GREAT resource for a tutor or teacher as we could lift/adapt these exercises for 1:1 work. I like the way you've really opened up the material with the word lists. Again (speaking from the perspective of a private tutor) I think this is particularly useful as a resource to test a student's understanding (perhaps bringing these words into a game of hangman or other gap fill exercises). The grammar bits were quite memorable, I like your no-nonsense approach and voice that you have here. It's just useful stuff delivered without unnecessary padding but still accessible! I think that overall the book definitely fills a 'gap' by getting students actually looking at words, decoding them and building their intuition about how they are made, remade and deconstructed. It's also got a nice balance in its content in that it is accessible to a student at 10-11, but also useful for a tutor to adapt and create exercises from without much stress. I really like the use of colour throughout. I also really enjoyed the history bits too (e.g. about Latin roots of words) - very interesting. From Jessica and Roman McA.My son didn't lose concentration and worked for 20 mins without one single complaint. He really liked the word searches. He said writing sentences and drawing pictures was fun. He also liked filling in the missing letters, which I think is a brilliant way of really taking in the sequence of the letters. Roman scored really well on the tests, which is pretty good considering he hates spelling!

A Creative Approach to Teaching Spelling is packed full of fun and effective multi-sensory games and activities that build phonic skills as a key strategy for spelling. In addition, there are games that develop further strategies to supplement phonic skills. Preceding the games is a summary of major developments in the teaching of spelling over the last forty years. This leads to an analysis of the current research and approaches on which the games are based. With the knowledge, skills and ideas offered, teachers can enhance the growing range of phonic-based spelling programmes currently used within schools, or they can build engaging spelling programmes of their own to meet the specific groups or individual pupils. The games and activities will help to develop and embed children's phonological awareness, phonic knowledge and auditory memory.
