  Morphology (linguistics) - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Morphology is a subdiscipline of linguistics that studies word structure.
A contemporary morphologist would call this a "morpheme-based" theory; alternatives are lexeme-based morphology and word-based morphology.
But as the example of "morpheme" reveals, bound morphemes may become unbound ones: "morph" has been adopted in linguistics for the phonological realization of a morpheme, and the verb "morph" was coined to describe a transition between morphological states (usually biological).

In this way, morphology is the branch of linguistics that studies patterns of word-formation within and across languages, and attempts to formulate rules that model the knowledge of the speakers of those languages.
The part of morphology that covers the relationship between syntax and morphology is called morphosyntax, and it concerns itself with inflection and paradigms, but not with word-formation or compounding.
Lexical morphology is the branch of morphology that deals with the lexicon, which, morphologically conceived, is the collection of lexemes in a language.

 Morphology - Linguistics (general) Journals, Books & Online Media | Springer
The aim of Morphology is to publish high quality articles that contribute to the further articulation of morphological theory and linguistic theory in general, or present new and unexplored data.
Morphology publishes articles on morphology proper, as well as articles on the interaction of morphology with phonology, syntax, and semantics, the acquisition and processing of morphological information, the nature of the mental lexicon, and morphological variation and change.
Its main focus is on formal models of morphological knowledge, morphological typology (the range and limits of variation in natural languages), the position of morphology in the architecture of the human language faculty, and the evolution and change of language.

 Theoretical linguistics - an introduction - Citizendium
Theoretical linguistics is that branch of linguistics that is most concerned with developing models of linguistic knowledge.
Part of this endeavor involves the search for and explanation of linguistic universals, that is, properties all languages have in common.
The fields that are generally considered the core of theoretical linguistics are syntax, phonology, morphology, and semantics.

A contemporary morphologist would call this a "morpheme-based" theory; alternatives are lexeme-based morphology and word-based morphology.
A word may consist of two bound morphemes: the word "morpheme" itself illustrates this, since it consists, or traditionally consisted, of two bound morphemes ("morph" and "eme").
But as the example of "morpheme" reveals, bound morphemes may become unbound ones: "morph" has been adopted in linguistics for the phonological realization of a morpheme, and the verb "morph" was coined to describe a type of visual effect done with computers.

 SOU Linguistics :: morphology
Morphology gives us a method to divide all the words in the dictionary into two broad categories, free morphemes and bound morphemes.
If the process is [free morpheme] + [inflectional morpheme] = [a different word], but when you check a dictionary you only find a listing for the different word as part of the listing of the [free morpheme's] definition, then the bound morpheme you added to the other morpheme was indeed an inflectional.
Morphology also studies the numerous ways new words are formed.

As in the first edition, the theoretical discussion is eclectic and critical: its scope ranges from the ancient grammarians to the work of Chomsky and his followers, the disintegration of the classical Chomskyan scheme, and the renewed standing of morphology and historical linguistics in recent years.
Unlike other introductory morphology textbooks, it places little emphasis on the latest theories of the month, focusing instead on the major problems faced in describing systematically the structure of words in various languages.
Yet at the same time, the book has historically played an important role in the development of morphology in the US during the last 30 years, by articulating the basics of the Word-and-Paradigm approach to morphology as an alternative to the traditional structuralist dichotomy (Item-and-Arrangement vs. Item-and-Process).
