Títol del seminari: The place of motivation in word formation


Ponent: Pius ten Hacken is a Professor and Chair in the Department of Translation Studies at Universität Innsbruck. 

Data i hora: 15 de juny, a les 16.00 h.

Resum: Word formation is a mechanism for the creation of new associations between a name and a concept. In generative linguistics, it is often conceived of as a rule component that resembles syntax in many respects. The rule component produces possible words. In order to get a specific meaning, a word has to be lexicalized. Blocking accounts for the non-availability of certain possible words. In such a conception, motivation does not play a central role. I will argue, however, that possible wordlexicalization and blocking are problematic concepts and do not lead to a proper account of word formation. On the basis of a number of examples, I will demonstrate that starting from the need to come up with a name for a concept as a motivation for the formation process leads to a much more plausible model of word formation.
