Abstract: 

This book is an introduction to the study of word-formation, that is, 
the ways in which new words are built on the bases of other words 
(e.g. happy - happy-ness), focusing on English. The book's didactic 
aim is to enable students with little or no prior linguistic knowledge 
to do their own practical analyses of complex words. Readers are 
familiarized with the necessary methodological tools to obtain and 
analyze relevant data and are shown how to relate their findings to 
theoretical problems and debates. The book is not written in the 
perspective of a particular theoretical framework and draws on 
insights from various research traditions, reflecting important 
methodological and theoretical developments in the field. It is a 
textbook directed towards university students of English at all 
levels. It can also serve as a source book for teachers and advanced 
students, and as an up-to-date reference concerning many 
word-formation processes in English.
