  Describing Morphosyntax: A Guide for Field Linguists
Describing Morphosyntax is the result of fourteen years of teaching and research in descriptive linguistics.
Rather, Describing Morphosyntax provides a structure for working through the grammatical description of a language at a reasonable level of inclusiveness, while allowing for more comprehensive treatments by pointing to relevant parts of the now extensive literature on universals of language.
Describing Morphosyntax is designed as a reference guide for linguists, anthropologists and others engaged in linguistic fieldwork.

 Morphology (linguistics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Inflection is therefore said to be relevant to syntax, and word-formation not so.
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.
In the exposition above, morphological rules are described as analogies between word-forms: dog is to dogs as cat is to cats, and as dish is to dishes.

 Autolexical Theory
Cross-linguistic tendencies involving case (such as that nominative case tends to be unmarked morphologically) can be expressed by a case-marking hierarchy in the morphosyntax, while the thematic relations expressed by the cases are relevant to the logico-semantics.
It would be inappropriate to invoke the notion of subject in the morphosyntax, for example, because there is nothing which corresponds to a notional subject there.
The grammar of the morphosyntax is either finite-state or context-free, with the latter more generally accepted among autolexicalists.

In Babby's terminology, (1a,b) exhibit heterogeneous morphosyntax (the numeral is not in the same case as the noun it quantifies), and (1c) exhibits homogeneous morphosyntax: (1)a.
Heterogeneous morphosyntax is the result of the numeral bearing the Quantitative case, spelled out on nouns and adjectives as the Genitive, and on the numeral (in this context) as the attested form (traditionally, if incorrectly on our view, called the Nominative).
Heterogeneous morphosyntax is found only in direct case positions because these are positions of structural case assignment, which in the assumed framework are positions in which the noun is inserted in syntactic structure without case (to be assigned it in the syntax).

 The acquisition of the morphosyntax of finite verbs in English
This paper is concerned with the acquisition of the morphosyntax of finite verbs by monolingual children acquiring British English as their first language.
In this section, I examine the implications of the lexical-thematic analysis for the morphosyntax of finite verbs in child English.
Have and be have nonfinite forms (a property of V constituents), and also have finite forms which inflect for tense/agreement and undergo inversion in questions; it might therefore seem plausible to suppose that have/be originate in V, and move from there to AGR and to T in declaratives, and thence to C in interrogatives.

In the second part of the class, we will discuss different theoretical approaches to the study of language acquisition and consider some of the empirical work on the development of morphosyntax.
It is the goal of the course to make students aware of the differences between English and German grammar and to introduce them to functional-cognitive explanations in the study of morphosyntax.
The course does not presuppose any background knowledge in morphosyntax and will give students the opportunity to analyze the structure of concrete linguistic data.

Describing Morphosyntax: A Guide for Field Linguists (1997) by Thomas E. Payne with ISBN 521588057 is of interest to conlangers.
Thomas E. Payne's Describing Morphosyntax has been referred to by many as "the Conlanger's Bible", and I'll not dispute what that reference implies.
The first is that DM has a wealth of language data, and most of it comes from languages even many linguists haven't heard of.

 Balinese morphosyntax: a lexical-functional approach Wayan Arka
This book is the first comprehensive study of Balinese morphosyntax from a lexicalist perspective.
It discusses intricate facts in the relationship between morphosyntax and semantics in Balinese and highlights the significance of the facts with regard to linguistic theory and language typology.
It provides in-depth discussions on important topics in linguistics: split intransitivity, grammatical relations (subjecthood and termhood), phrase structures, argument structures, reflexive binding and morpholexical derivations (passivisation, applicativisation and causativisation).

 The Interaction Between Clause-Level Parameters and Context in Russian Morphosyntax   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The quantitative data and qualitative interpretation of individual examples show that the two instances of morphosyntactic variation are conditioned by tension between clause-internal properties and context competing to impose a specific interpretation on the clause.
The interpretations of the clause which trigger the variants are described in terms of a similar set of semantic primitives in both types of morphosyntactic variation--an indication that they may belong to the general set of basic semantic components which operate in variation in Russian morphosyntax.
The semantics of the negative and predicate adjective clauses also suggests different manners in which morphosyntax and discourse may interact.

 Hélène Brijnen: German Influence in the Morphosyntax of Sorbian Verbs
Although in the 18th and 19th century, many speakers of Sorbian were still monolingual, a clear German influence could already be detected in the writings of the peasant-writer Hanso Nepila (1761-1856) of the village of Rowne in Saxony (formerly Lower Silesia).
This German influence was not only present in the lexicon, but also, for instance, in the verbal morphosyntax.
The use of verbal prefixes will be analysed, on the basis of evidence from Nepila's Slepe dialect, a transitional dialect between Upper and Lower Sorbian.

John Benjamins: Book details for Issues in Morphosyntax [LA 26]
Of particular interest to morphologists and syntacticians Issues in Morphosyntax aims to contribute to the discussion on the question whether there exists a separate morphological module in the grammar, distinct from the other modules, with special focus on the connection of morphology with syntax.
The view that is defended is that morphological operations do not take place in syntax, but that they are governed by the same principles that govern syntax.
