A comprehensive introduction to structural and generative morphology which serves structural notions of morpheme, word, word formation processes and morphophonemic. Morphological theory and analysis in contemporary generative grammar presented involve students in hypotheses formation and testing them against data from English, Arabic and sometimes other languages. It explores the relationship between the lexicon, morphology, and phonology or morphology and syntax. Numerous in-text exercises are carried out. The study of syntax gives the basics of sentence structure and the essentials of syntactic argument. It presents the function-form interference, predicates, arguments and thematic roles, x bar syntax, movement, substitution and some case studies.
