Summary
This volume investigates the processes by which novel words in English are coined, adopted, and adapted, such as affixation, compounding, and clipping. It looks at the interaction between word-forming operations, expressive morphology, and language play, and will appeal to all those interested in English etymology, lexicography, and morphology
