Book Information

   

Title: Spanish Word Formation and Lexical Creation
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/ivitra.1
Series Title: IVITRA Research in Linguistics and Literature 1
Description:

This volume contributes a wider approach to word formation processes and
sheds light on some unsolved issues. While the formal relationships established
between the different constituents of a complex word have been analyzed in
great depth, the semantic links have received little dedication. In order to
complete the analysis, it is necessary to pay attention to the semantic
properties associated to verbalization. The main purpose of the book is to
integrate both the semantic proposals and the formal perspectives concerning
word formation. This theoretical aim becomes the framework to study several
mechanisms of lexical creation and neologisms. Furthermore, word formation is
presented as a new source for Applied Linguistics. Although the volume uses
Spanish as a starting point, it means to delimit formation patterns which may
also be productive in other languages. This book is sure to become an important
reference in the controversial field of word formation.
