In the XVIII and XIX century Spain, the scientific and technical advances made a significant impact on the ancient crafts. The massive introduction of new notions produced a change in the conceptual organization that, on a linguistic level, led to a situation of lexical need. In this context, the language started a process of lexical creation. This essay aims to contribute to the study of this particular period in the history of Spanish language through the analysis of the neological mechanism of morphological derivation. More precisely, we will study the productivity of derivation in a technical lexicon: leather tanning. The study has two main objectives. Firstly, to provide a quantitative description of the phenomenon, analyzing the neological dynamics inside the fields that compose the domain. Secondly, to analyze the affixes in order to find the patterns that regulate the adoption of a certain neological mechanism.
