I was ambivalent to give my rating. The book seemed promised to be a good reading, until 2.2, when I really shocked to find that the length of two parts 2.2.2 Meaning below the morpheme and 2.2.3 Meaning above the word levels are just one page each. I couldn't believe that these two issues with so many provoked questions are treated in that little of details. Kind of disappointed. The remaining of the book is fine though sometimes I was disoriented by the naming of the head points.
