Regarding Query: http://linguistlist.org/issues/18/18-522.html
I apologize for taking so long in sending you the summary of my request on
Saussure. I received the following responses:
Andrew Carstairs-McCarthy indicated his chapter 'Basic terminology', in P
Stekauer & R Lieber (eds) _Handbook
of Word-Formation_ (Springer, 2005).
Philip W. Davis told me about the chapter 2 of his Modern Theories of
Language (1973, Prentice-Hall), unfortunately now out of print.
Konrad Szczesniak suggested me the reading of Aronoff’s Fundamentals of
Shishir Bhattacharja kindly sent me his doctoral thesis, “Word formation in
Bengali”, in which he adopts a neo-Saussurean point of view.
Israel Cohen sent me interesting considerations on the etymology of idioms,
but as this is not my main area of interest, I ask you to contact him
directly (cohen.izzygmail.com), if you wish so.
