This book uses detailed analysis of data from Romance inflectional morphology to cast new light on the role of autonomous morphological structure in the diachrony and synchrony of the Romance languages. It constitutes a major contribution to Romance historical morphology in particular, and to our understanding of the nature and importance of morphomic (i.e. morphologically autonomous) structure in language change in general. It will therefore appeal both to Romance linguists and to morphological theorists at large.

Keywords: autonomous morphology; morphome; lexicalist; structuralist; Paradigm Function; Morphology; Word‐and‐Paradigm; pattern
