              Extra-grammatical Morphology in English: Abbreviations, Blends, Reduplicatives, and Related Phenomena (Hardback)

              By Mattiello, Elisa

              Extra-grammatical morphology is a hitherto neglected area of research, highly marginalised because of its irregularity and unpredictability. Yet many neologisms in English are formed by means of extra-grammatical mechanisms, such as abbreviation, blending and reduplication, which... therefore deserve both greater attention and more systematic study.

              This book explores the English verb-particle construction from a historical and cross-linguistic perspective. Challenging established views and tracing their origins in the normative tradition, the author shows the evolution of theconstruction to follow a widely attested path and... argues that the apparentpeculiarities of phrasal verbs in Modern English are epiphenomenal to otherstructural characteristics of the language.
