We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
We are searching for neologisms which are the result of word-formation by suffixation. The purpose of this research is the analysis of underlying structures. The results of the sources employed so far (e.g. traditional handbooks on word-formation, Dictionary of Neologisms, Reverse Dictionaries, Research and Development Unit for English Studies RDUES)) are not sufficient for setting up a representative corpus.
Our question: Is there a useful alternative to the works of reference mentioned above, e.g. is there a way to get electronic access to neologisms in English newspapers?
We would be grateful for a reply Pascal Biesenbach
