ENGLISH LEXICOLOGY II : WORD-FORMATION PROCESSES
In linguistics, the main focus is often put on morphosyntax (traditionally called “grammar”), thus leaving behind the study of words (lexemes). Yet, without words, no human communication would be possible. This lecture in English lexicology aims to fill in this gap and to make students aware that lexicology is a vast area of study and research.

This seminar is the sequel of the lexicology class offered in semester 1 the various word-formation processes thanks to which language and the English lexicon constantly evolve will be studied, as well as the underlying motivations behind them.
The class will be organized as a research seminar, and students will be asked to actively participate by presenting various research papers in class in English.
