Review of: Eva Zimmermann Morphological length and prosodically defective morphemes, Oxford: OUP 2017 (Oxford Studies in Phonology and Phonetics 1)

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article reviewpeer-review


This is an extremely rich and rewarding book. It offers a challenging and innovative analysis of a wide range of tough morphophonological phenomena. Its central claim is simple and, in the words of the fictional Sir Humphrey Appleby, ‘very brave’: that there is no such thing as non-concatenative morphology.
