Abstract:

While cognitive linguistics has become established as a comprehensive
research paradigm over the last three decades, it has so far hardly
contributed to investigations into processes of lexical creation as
traditionally captured in research on word formation. In light of this, the
volume at hand is the first one to take a step ahead towards illuminating
diverse aspects of word formation from cognitive perspectives. The book
combines contributions to the 2nd International Cognitive Linguistics
Conference of the German Cognitive Linguistics Association with a selection
of invited papers by scholars working on issues of word formation and
cognitive linguistics.

This selection is guided by pluralism in both methodology and topics. Thus,
some contributions are of a primarily theoretical nature discussing, for
example, recombinance as a model of word formation and a taxonomy of word
formation processes as construction types. Several articles address
interface issues such as word formation and phrasal constructions, word
formation and inflection, as well as phonology and word formational
patterns. The majority of the studies focuses on individual types of word
formation (compounding, affixation, and conversion), and they contribute to
reframing our understanding of these processes. With a focus on mostly
Germanic languages (Afrikaans, Dutch, English, German, Luxembourgish, and
Norwegian), data-driven analyses include corpus linguistic investigations,
elicited data, psycholinguistic experiments, and computational linguistic
applications. A few contributions follow a mainly introspective path of
reasoning based on the discussion of selected examples as in the analysis
of creative compounds.

Overall, the volume provides a rich array of topics emerging under the
umbrella of cognitive linguistic thought and established patterns and
processes of word formation. The various studies add to a yet marginal body
of research in cognitive word formation and, thus, advance our awareness
about the benefits of applying cognitive linguistic thoughts for
investigating processes of lexical creation.
