Description:

The book describes the most important patterns for the analysis and creation of German derivations and compounds. Word formation patterns are viewed as rules belonging to the lexicon of a language that include all the systematic syntactic, semantic morphological and phonological information necessary for using complex words. The focus is on semantic patterns, which describe the possibilities of the semantic change of primary words from derivations and compounds.
