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.
