Subject: Saussure on Word-Formation

Dear colleagues,
I am doing a research on word-formation theories, and I noticed that this
is a subject quite extensively discussed in the ''Cours de Linguistique
Générale'', specially on the chapters about syntagmatic and associative
relations and analogy, with very interesting conclusions, in my opinion.
However, I could not find any papers or books which comment Saussure's
ideas specifically in this subject. As far as I could find, Roy Harris's
book ''Reading Saussure'' does not treat this as a major problem. I would
appreciate if you could tell me if you know any works discussing
word-formation in a Saussurean view. Thank you!
Best regards,

Linguistic Field(s): Morphology
