This book deals with one of the central problems for theories of
word-formation, the productivity of morphological processes. A broad
range of English derivational affixes are investigated, making use of
recent innovations in lexicography, quantitive corpus linguistics,
Optimality Theory and Lexical Conceptual Semantics. It is argued that
the productivity of a given affix and its combinability with other
affixes are primarily the result of its individual structural properties
(phonological, morphological and semantic), and not due to more general
mechanisms of the various kinds proposed, for example, by proponents of
Lexical Phonology/ Morphology or Lexeme-Morpheme-Base Morphology.
