My question is: Is there such a thing as An English Dictionary of
I have looked in several libraries trying to find such a dictionary so
that I can continue my research.
So far, I have not come across any such compilation.
If there is no such kind of dictionary, there might be a particular
textbook partially devoted to the subject?
To me it doesn't seem the kind of thing that anyone would be tempted to produce a dictionary of. If one has a dictionary of the ordinary kind, of words, perhaps with appendices listing derivational suffixes and prefixes such as are included in many ordinary published dictionaries, it is not easy for me to see what additional value there would be in a dictionary of morphemes.
