Presents articles that contribute to the further articulation of morphological theory and linguistic theory in general, and provide new and unexplored data. In-depth analyses of specific languages and comparative, cross-linguistic, analyses of the relevant facts offer relevant empirical evidence for the theoretical claims made in the journal.

The journal covers morphology proper as well as the interaction of morphology with phonology, syntax, and semantics, the acquisition and processing of morphological information, the nature of the mental lexicon, and morphological variation and change. Its main focus is on formal models of morphological knowledge, morphological typology, the position of morphology in the architecture of the human language faculty, and the evolution and change of language.

In addition, Morphology deals with the acquisition of morphological knowledge and its role in language processing as well as computational morphology and neurolinguistic approaches to morphology.
