The Morpheme: A Theoretical Introduction (2015) Mouton de Gruyter, Boston and Berlin. (de Gruyter link)
Abstract: This book develops a theory of the morpheme in the framework of Distributed Morphology. Particular emphasis is devoted to the way in which functional morphemes receive their phonological form post-syntactically, through the operation of Vocabulary Insertion. In addition to looking closely at syncretism, the primary motivation for Vocabulary Insertion, the book examines allomorphy, blocking, and other key topics in the theory of the morpheme.
Localism versus Globalism in Morphology and Phonology (2010) MIT Press, Cambridge, MA.(MIT Press link)
Abstract: This book develops two major themes. First, I present a cyclic (phase-based) theory of syntax/morphology, and show how this theory provides an account of attested patterns of allomorphy in language. Second, I compare the predictions of this "Localist" type of theory with those of "Globalist" theories like Optimality Theory. Based on a number of case studies that center on Phonologically Conditioned Allomorphy, I argue that the Localist view is correct, and that this finding has important implications for grammatical theory.
