Title: Shakespeare’s agentive neologisms in -er:A functional view

Group publication title:

Token

Abstract:

The article is a corpus-based, empirical study into the problem of Shakespearean agentive neologisms in -er in the light of a functional approach towards word-formation. Drawing on Kastovsky’s (1983) idea of two functions of word-formation, i.e. the lexical and the syntactic one, as well as taking into consideration Strang’s (1969) aspectual dichotomy of agentive formations, the collected material is subjected to functionally-oriented analysis. The results of the study demonstrate that the word-formational processes in question are closer to syntactic operations than to lexical ones, which allows to reconsider the status of some Shakespearean lexical innovations and the role they have played in making up the lexicon of contemporary English.
