This book contains twenty articles on the subject of derivational morphology in Indo-European languages, and is the result of the conference Indo-European Word Formation, held in Copenhagen, 20–22 October 2000.
The papers, covering all areas of Indo-European studies, make substantial contributions to the current intensive research on word formation, and many of them break new ground or shed new light on old problems. While some contributions are particularly concerned with the construction of theoretical models of Indo-European, others continue the traditional philological research into corpus languages. Finally, such issues as the borderland between morphology and syntax and the potential connection between Indo-European and other language families are brought up for discussion.
