Morphology and Lexical Semantics explores the meanings of morphemes and how they combine to form the meanings of complex words, including derived words (writer, unionize), compounds (dog bed, truck driver), and words formed by conversion. Rochelle Lieber discusses the lexical semantics of word formation in a systematic way, allowing the reader to explore the nature of affixal polysemy, the reasons why there are multiple affixes with the same function, and the issues of mismatch between form and meaning in word formation. Using a series of case studies from English, this book develops and justifies the theoretical apparatus necessary for raising and answering many questions about the semantics of word formation. Distinguishing between a lexical semantic skeleton that is featural and hierarchically organized, and a lexical semantic body that is holistic, it shows how the semantics of word formation has a paradigmatic character. First book to deal exclusively with the topic of morphology and lexical semantics Raises and answers many questions about the semantics of word-formation Uses a number of case studies from English Contents 1. Features; 2. Coindexation; 3. The semantics of verb formation; 4. Extending the system - location; 5. Extending the system - quantity; 6. Combinality and the correspondence between form and meaning; 7. Where to go from here. Printed Pages: 206.
