Abstract:

A student's dictionary of English confronts the learner with more than
50,000 words- an intimidating prospect. The present book shows that a few
hundred word elements occur over and over again (affixes for instance like
-ation, bio-, de-, -ize, -less, un-). Learning these- their individual
meaning and how they combine- is a gigantic step towards understanding the
many thousands of complex words of which they form a part. So a lexical
item like 'bidirectionally' will easily be analysed and processed as a
combination of bi-direct-ion-al-ly, 'in two directions'. The inclusion and
clear differentiation of affix synonyms and antonyms completes this new and
systematic lexical treatment. A Dictionary of English Affixes thus
constitutes a unique linguistic tool for vocabulary expansion as well as
text comprehension and analysis.

But in addition, the book will have a quite distinct and separate
application in automated language processing.
