Extra-grammatical Morphology in English

Abbreviations, Blends, Reduplicatives, and Related Phenomena

2016 AIA Book Prize
Extra-grammatical morphology is a hitherto neglected area of research, highly marginalised because of its irregularity and unpredictability. Yet many neologisms in English are formed by means of extra-grammatical mechanisms, such as abbreviation, blending and reduplication, which therefore deserve both greater attention and more systematic study. This book analyses such phenomena.
