Product Description

Book Description

This textbook provides an accessible introduction to the study of word-formation, focusing specifically on English. Assuming no prior linguistic knowledge, it explains the fundamentals of word-formation, encouraging students to undertake their own morphological analyses of English words, and familiarising them with the methodological tools to obtain and analyse relevant data.

Format: Paperback
I can only recommend this book to all students and lay people that are interested in English word-formation and how this all works. Ingo Plag gives a very good overview of all the basics and explains lots of the terminology that is important for dealing with that kind of topics...Although it´s more of an introductory work it is also recommendable to more advanced readers as it gives very up-to-date information about word-formation processes in English these days!
