Abstract:

Morpho-Lexical Alternation in Noun Formation proposes a novel analysis of
the structure of complex nouns in English, placing the focus on noun pairs
that share single roots but end in different suffixes such as
dispersal/dispersion, emergence/emergency, citizenship/citizenry,
tipper/tipster, etc. To achieve this mission, the author combines two
aspects of language: derivation and usage. With regard to derivation, the
book serves to acquaint the readers with the ways in which nouns are formed
by means of suffixes. Based on tenets of Cognitive Semantics, the book
describes the nominal suffixes as (i) exhibiting multiple senses, (ii)
displaying distinct uses, and (iii) reflecting discrete conceptualisations.
With reference to usage, the book serves to familiarise readers with the
ways in which the noun pairs are actually used. Based on axioms of
Usage-based Linguistics, the book depicts the noun pairs as (i) occurring
in disparate contexts, and (ii) accompanying distinguishable collocations.
