The course aims at discussing various morphological properties of English and German from different theoretical perspectives and to familiarise students with several morphological frameworks. Each major topic is assigned at least two frameworks. We will discuss original articles which are fundamental for the relevant theories and which address the particular issues to be examined. The classes will be taught in English.
There is no set textbook for the course but students may find it useful to have access to the following books:
Stewart, Thomas W. 2015. Contemporary morphological theories: A user’s guide. Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press.
Hippisley, Andrew & Gregory Stump (eds.). 2017. The Cambridge handbook of morphology. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
