The semantics of derivational processes has long been a neglected field in word-formation studies. More recently this topic has attracted considerable attention, but a workable model of word-formation semantics that can meet the empirical challenges posed by the data is still under debate. Some of these challenges are the well-known flexibility or underspecification of affixal meaning, pervasive polysemy and the role of world knowledge in the formation of new derivatives.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together theoretical and empirical approaches to these (and perhaps other) problems.
