This textbook provides an accessible int roduction to the study of word-formation, focussing specifically on English. Assuming no prior Linguistic knowledge, Ingo Plag explains the fundamentals of word-formation, showing how morphemes--the elements of a word's internal structure--can function both to relate words to other words, and to create new words. Students are encouraged to undertake their own morphological analyses of English words, and are familiarised with the methodological tools to obtain and analyse relevant data. Word-Formation in English will be welcomed by all students of English Language and Linguistics.
