The Mechanisms Morpho-Lexical and Semantic, that Bring such Language Solutions. The Formation of Words with Prefixes and Suffixes, Phenomena and its Peculiar Aspects in Italian

Arben Skendaj


Word-formation in Italian as a lexical and linguistic phenomenon is essential to the enrichment of Italian language and not only. Its various aspects consider the prefixes, the suffixes and the composition. On one hand, there is the derivating ratio of the composition and on the other hand, we deal with the lexicology and semantics. Also, I am taking into consideration the report of prefixes and suffixes in Italian, focusing on the synchronic and diachronic studies in general, and particularly on the vocabulary. The subject of my analyses is the interfering of linguistic phenomena, focusing on the cases of derivation, but at the same time intertwining these two types and case studies, giving the value of prefixes and suffixes in word-formation. Prefixes, suffixes and composition are not only some ways to resolve powerful linguistic problems, but also serve to enrich the vocabulary of Italian, and any other language.
