This book has been long in coming. Conceived and begun at a period when both of us had abundant research time, it accompanied us through a steadily increasing amount of academic duties and responsibilities. We are grateful to all our authors who have remained faithful to the endeavour.

We thank the fabulous Oxford University Press staff—especially Julia Steer, Vicki Sunter, and Karen Morgan—for their help in preparing the volume. They were incredibly supportive from day one to the end. A special thank-you goes to the late John Davey, who graciously welcomed us at Oxford University Press. He was the first to believe in this project, and we are very sad that we never got to meet in person.

We owe gratitude to the numerous colleagues who kindly agreed to serve as reviewers; their time and expertise was essential in ensuring the quality of the volume. We also thank Geert Booij, Ray Jackendoff, and Tom Stewart for advice on individual chapters.

Heartfelt thanks to our personal angels Maurice and Yuri, for listening, encouraging, and cooking for us while we worked on the volume.

Finally, we would like to thank each other, for still being good friends after completing this journey.

We wish to dedicate this book to the eminent morphologist Geert Booij. Recently retired, Geert has been a beacon in the morphological community for over thirty years. To us, he has meant even more. He has inspired us through all stages of our career. He has been—and still is—a role model, a mentor, a guide, and a friend.
