Paradigmatic word-formation, metonymy and compound verbs in English and Bulgarian
Bagasheva, Alexandra; Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”
In the paper Paradigmatic word-formation, metonymy and compound verbs in English and Bulgarian Alexandra Bagasheva argues that compound verbs constitute a genuine word-formation category and that it is possible to achieve uniformity in their analysis despite the notorious heterogeneity of their formation. It is suggested that by adopting paradigmatic word-formation analysis and accepting metonymy as the basic meaning computation mechanism behind compound verbs, analytical parsimony and uniformity can be attained. Embracing a product view morphotactically, but a process view morphosemantically, the paper offers uniform analysis of compound verbs in English and Bulgarian.
