    schema:reviewBody ""Suffixal Rivalry in Adjective Formation deals with adjective formation in English, concentrating mainly on adjective pairs that share single roots but end in different suffixes. Theoretically, the book adopts Cognitive Semantics and attempts to substantiate three of its tenets. In view of the category tenet, the book considers adjectival suffixes polysemous in character, comprising multiple senses which gather around typical examples. By virtue of the domain tenet, the book regards the adjectival suffixes distinctive in use, partaking in similar sets but differing in minute details. In light of the construal tenet, the book rates the adjective pairs distinguishable in meaning, differing in the alternate ways the speaker describes their common roots. Empirically, the book adopts Corpus Linguistics. Making use of its effective techniques, this book identifies the discriminating collocates associated with the members of adjective pairs, helping to confirm the subtle differences in meaning between them."--BOOK JACKET." ;
