Morphological variation is a rather young, yet fascinating topic to study in its own right because it offers challenging evidence both for the autonomy of morphology (morphomic processes) as well as for its tight interconnection with other grammatical domains, notably phonology and syntax. Covering a wide range of phenomena (e.g. negation structures, form function-mismatches in the verbal and nominal domain, loss of morphosyntactic feature values, etc.), the contributions to this volume combine in-depth empirical studies with the explanatory potential of modern theories of grammar as well as approaches for capturing and modelling microtypological diversity.

Table of Contents
“Insgesamt legen Dammel und Schallert einen sehr überzeugenden Sammelband vor, dessen
Beiträge auf durchweg hohem Niveau die für alle Bereiche der Sprachwissenschaft zentrale Frage
nach dem Zusammenspiel theoretischer Modellierung und empirischer Evidenz erörtern und
damit einen wesentlichen Beitrag nicht nur zur dialektologischen Forschung, sondern auch zur
linguistischen Theoriebildung leisten.”
