Jonathan Bobaljik | Book Award

Jonathan Bobaljik's recent monograph Universals in Comparative Morphology: Suppletion, Superlatives, and the Structure of Words (MIT Press, 2012) has been selected to receive the 2014 Leonard Bloomfield Book Award. In selecting the work, the LSA’s Bloomfield Award Committee issued the following citation:

"A work exemplary in its clarity, as well as in its empirical contribution.  The sampling of language examined, and the attention to detail regarding each is impressive.  This book is the definitive study of issues of comparative and superlative morphosyntax, and will become a model to follow in the study of other morphological phenomena."  

Congratulations, Jonathan!
