Languages of publication
The paper pays attention to paradigmatic relations of word-formation, particularly to the component of word-formation system represented by the concept of word-formation chain which is the evidence of recursiveness in word-formation. The word-formation chain is defined as the order in which words follow each other while the next word is derived from the previous one in a row, e.g. Slovak voda ‚water‘ → vodník ‚water goblin‘ → vodnícky ‚relating to water goblin‘. The analysis concentrates on a statistical, word-formation and morphological analysis of 44,705 word-formation chains of sizes ranging from two to eight members. The most frequent chains consist of three words, two words, or four words, respectively. The data are based on Slovník koreňových morfém slovenčiny [Slovak Dictionary of Root Morphemes] (Sokolová et al., 2005, 2007, 2012).
