This chapter introduces the contents of this book which consists of four parts. Firstly it looks at syntactic and semantic ordering. Then it considers honological and morphological ordering. Next, it looks at psycholinguistic and cognitive ordering. Finally, it moves on to description and acquisition of affix order. The volume discusses novel data from various typologically diverse languages, including languages whose affix ordering has not been examined so far, and the reader will find examples from Adyghe (Caucasian), Athpare and Camling (Kiranti), Bulgarian, Russian and Polish (Slavic), English and German (Germanic), Greek, French and Italian (Romance), Huave (language isolate, Huavean), Karachay-Balkar (Turkic), Kurmanji (Kurdish), and Lithuanian (Baltic). Unlike previous research on affix ordering, most of the contributions in this collection consider more than one language. The introductory chapter briefly introduces the approaches to affix order and provides descriptions of the chapters included in the volume, along with a discussion of the recent developments in the research on affix ordering.

Keywords:   affix ordering, typology, syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, child language, theory of grammar
