Book Information


Title: Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives on Lexical Blending
Edited By: Vincent Renner
Fran├žois Maniez
Pierre J. L. Arnaud
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 252

The volume brings together a well-selected collection of twelve articles providing a comprehensive and very informative summary of contemporary work on lexical blending. It combines theoretically informed descriptions of a variety of languages and a number of contributions with a theoretically original focus. It is the first book of its kind on the subject, and because of its cross-disciplinary nature, it is of high relevance not only to word-formation scholars and students, but also to a wide readership within the linguistics community.
