Abstract:

The most comprehensive book to date on word formation in terms of scope of
topics, schools and theoretical positions

All contributions were written by the leading scholars in their respective
areas

This volume, intended both for advanced students and scholars of
linguistics, traces the many strands of study in the field of word
formation that have developed since the seminal work of Marchand and Lees
in the 1960s. In mapping the state of the art in the field of word
formation, it avoids a biased approach by presenting different, but
mutually complementary frameworks within which research into word
formation has taken place. It covers the historical development of
theories of word formation within generative grammar, and affords a solid
introduction to the treatment of word formation in cognitive grammar,
natural morphology, optimality theory, Lexeme Morpheme Base Morphology,
onomasiological theory, and other recent frameworks. Each topic is
presented by an expert who has contributed significantly to the field. In
addition to surveying theoretical developments from both European and
North American perspectives, it looks specifically at individual English
word formation processes (derivation, compounding, conversion) and reviews
some of the ways in which they have been analyzed since Marchand's
comprehensive treatment nearly five decades ago.
