Abstract

 

Word formation in Slavic studies is generally accorded the status of an independent linguistic
discipline, although it is frequently subsumed under grammar in course books. The basis of
the theoretical framework which serves to define its linguistic status lies in systemising the
terminology employed, as well as determining the boundaries which distinguish it from other
linguistic disciplines and their linguistic units. As there is no synonymous internationalism
for this discipline in the Croatian language, the term derivatology has been employed for the
discipline itself, derivatologist refers to a linguist practising the discipline, derivatography refers
to derivatological literature, and derivateme to a linguistic unit that is formed as the lexical
fund grows. An analysis of the multiple motivation of derivateme formation has revealed an
asymmetrical relationship between derivatemes and lexemes.
