What’s beyond ‘inchoatives’? Derivation types on the basis of -sc- verbs

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


This chapter presents an investigation on the productivity of words derived from -sc- verbs attested in Classical Latin, as a way of adding to the rich debate on their semantic significance. The work is performed through the use of empirical data provided by the Word Formation Latin lexicon, a derivational morphology resource for Classical and Late Latin. After a brief introduction on the issues regarding -sc- verbs, the derivations with -sc- verbs in input are taken into consideration and analysed by word formation type. The results of this examination are discussed with special emphasis on quantitative as well as diachronic and semantic data.
