Papers discussing cross-linguistic correlations between individual word-formation processes, between WF processes, on one hand, and genetic types and/or geographically related languages, on the other, are most welcome. Space will also be given to any other typologically oriented research into word-formation as well as papers discussing the scope of word-formation and the relation between word-formation and other linguistic disciplines.
