This volume contributes a wider approach to word formation processes and sheds light on some unsolved issues. While the formal relationships established between the different constituents of a complex word have been analyzed in great depth, the semantic links have received little dedication. In order to complete the analysis, it is necessary to pay attention to the semantic properties associated to verbalization. The main purpose of the book is to integrate both the semantic proposals and the formal perspectives concerning word formation. This theoretical aim becomes the framework to study several mechanisms of lexical creation and neologisms. Furthermore, word formation is presented as a new source for Applied Linguistics. Although the volume uses Spanish as a starting point, it means to delimit formation patterns which may also be productive in other languages. This book is sure to become an important reference in the controversial field of word formation.

“[This] is the first thematic volume that integrates both formal and semantic approaches to word formation and lexical creation. The studies included in the volume are theoretically up-to-date and present innovative case studies that are methodologically very solid. […] The mechanisms of word formation and lexical creation analyzed lead to new insights that will inspire scholars of other countries and may give rise to similar initiatives centered on other languages.”
“The present book convincingly shows how word-formation constitutes a field where correlations between conceptual, structural and pragmatic factors take place, how meaning takes a central part in the processes of word-formation, [and] how unfounded it is theoretically and methodologically to separate lexicon from grammar.”
“[U]na obra colectiva muy abarcadora, tanto por el número de fenómenos tratados como por la variedad de enfoques que se adoptan; es lo esperable cuando se trata un campo de estudio tan amplio. Por esto, el volumen resultará atractivo no solo para morfólogos en general, sino también para quienes estén interesados en alguno de los aspectos de la formación de palabras y su interacción, así como su aplicación en diversos ámbitos.”
“El volumen consta de diecinueve capítulos, divididos en cuatro apartados temáticos. En ellos, la lengua española funciona como pretexto para ilustrar las hipótesis o teorías expuestas; sin embargo, los patrones de formación que aquí se describen pueden ser también productivos en otras lenguas. [El libro] supone una oportunidad excepcional para adentrarse en el apasionante e intrincado mundo de la palabra compleja.”
