The book describes the most important patterns for the analysis and
creation of German derivations and compounds. Word formation patterns are
viewed as rules belonging to the lexicon of a language that include all the
systematic syntactic, semantic morphological and phonological information
necessary for using complex words. The focus is on semantic patterns, which
describe the possibilities of the semantic change of primary words from
derivations and compounds.

Wolfgang Motsch works at the Institute for German Language, Mannheim, Germany.
