A Survey of the Measurements of Morphological Productivity

Lifang Du, Xuezhong Zhang


Morphological productivity is one of the key issues in the study of derivational morphology. This paper makes a survey of the quantitative measurements of morphological productivity so far proposed by different scholars, and tentatively attempts to point out the pros and cons and also feasibility of each measurement, with a view to provide some assistance for the future researcher who is going to carry out the study in this field.
