The Evolution of Morphology

Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy (University of Canterbury, New Zealand)

This book considers the evolution of the grammatical structure of words in the contexts of human evolution and the origins of language. The author challenges the conventional views of the relationship between syntax and morphology, the adaptationist view of language evolution, and the notion that language in some way reflects ‘laws of form’.
