This book is an introduction to the study of word-formation, that is, the ways in which new words are built on the bases of other words, focusing.

To present the semantic refrains, the author starts from Barker , who attributes the formations in question three semantic features: sentience, lack of volitional control and episodic linking.

She argues for the separation of —ee formations into those which were active before and those which were active after the twentieth century.

The author starts from etymological information, gives reasons for the corpus-selected items and points to the French roots of the —ee suffixation in English. The minute diachronic analysis outlines a six-stage periodization in the history of English —ee formations and looks at the language phenomena noticeable within each of these stages as they were reflected by these formations. The first stage spans two centuries and produces a modest list comprising 16 —ee words.

The major linguistic phenomena peculiar to this beginning stage are the use of unassimilated Old French words and the —ee suffixation of the English verb stems.

The second evolving stage or the sixteenth century registers a growth in the word list with a sum total of 21 —ee words extracted from the OED.

In terms of linguistic phenomenology, the most important transformation is the shift to indirect passive noun formations; the division also considers exceptions to this generalizing perspective.

The list of the seventeenth century —ee formations indicates 47 such items. Through the linguistic perspective, this century unfolds few instances of generalization of meaning and even fewer cases of loss of the passive character. The element of novelty the author points to is the semantic extension of the —ee suffix to non-person referents. Nevertheless, it reflects the continuation of the —ee suffixation practice in the enrichment of the English vocabulary. The nineteenth century word list the author provides p.

In addition, the corpus indicates an incursion into varieties of English, such as Australian English and Scots English.

It also serves as a modulator towards the next chapter announcing its structure and its perspectives, i.

Morphology and the lexicon: On creativity and productivity of —ee words continues with a separate approach to the sixth stage in the periodization of —ee formations, the twentieth century —ee words.

Three main reasons underlie this separation: 1 an emphasis on productivity highlighting the differences in diachronic or synchronic interpretations, 2 the twentieth-century productivity allows for reference to the web-corpus analysis and 3 twentieth-century —ee formations exhibit a high number involving an abundance never noticeable before this century.

The author identifies the relationship between morphology and the lexicon as well as two concepts necessary in the analysis of the twentieth and twenty-first century word formation patterns, i. This makes chapter 4 a necessary continuation of these five stages in the history of the —ee formations.

Nonetheless, as language changes so do the interpretive methodology, means and procedures. The presentation focuses on types of productivity and includes gradual, qualitative, quantitative, diachronic and synchronic productivity as well as on their possible interconnections in relation to —ee formations.

For her personal interpretation of the twentieth century —ee formations in table 12 p.

Based on the previously established interpretive pattern, the author synthesizes her findings by advancing conclusive remarks. The linguistic phenomena peculiar to the twentieth-century —ee formations amount to four, but they may as well be completed by a generalized observation regarding the diversification of the semantic field.

Creativity, the second component discussed in this chapter, generally considers new words, distinguishes between nonce formations and neologisms and traces the evolution of a coinage from a nonce to a neologism.

Assuming no prior linguistic knowledge, Ingo Plag explains the fundamentals of word-formation, demonstrating how morphemes--the elements of a word's internal structure--can function to relate words to other words, and to create new words.

Students are encouraged to undertake their own morphological analysis of English words, and are introduced to the methodological tools for obtaining and analyzing relevant data. Excerpt The existence of words is usually taken for granted by the speakers of a language.
