Audring, Jenny, Geert Booij and Ray Jackendoff 2017 Menscheln, kibbelen, sparkle: Verbal diminutives between grammar and lexiconLinguistics in the Netherlands 2017, Lestrade, Sander and Bert Le Bruyn (eds.), pp. 1–15 | Article

This chapter argues that there is no absolute boundary between analogy and abstract schemas in word formation. Patterns of compounding are captured by constructional schemas of various degrees of abstraction. The necessity of such subschemas is argued for on the basis of observations on semantic… read more
