This volume is a collection of papers presented at a workshop on
"Extragrammatical and Marginal Morphology" held in Vienna in February 1996.
It brings together authors from different theoretical backgrounds, spanning
from Natural Morphology to lexicography and OT. The topics addressed
include, besides a general introduction to the concepts of extragrammatical
and marginal morphology, a close-up study of phenomena such as blends, the
make-up of trade names in different languages, and the morphological
structure of toponyms.
