1) Affixation : adding an affix (suffix or prefix) to a word
2) Compounding : 2 or more words into 1 word
3) Zero-Derivation : adding no affixes and using words of one category as another eg. nouns to verbs (text, message)
4) Stress shift : stress is shifted from one syllable to another which creates a change in category eg. noun to verb IMplant - implANT
5) Clipping : shortening of words eg. Professor to Prof
6) Acronym formation or Abbreviations : eg. omg
7) Blending : non-morphemic parts of two words are put together to form a new word eg. spanglish
8) Back-formation : taking off derivational affixes to create new words eg. self-destruction to self-destruct
9) Adoption of brand names as common words : eg. kleenex (remember, it has to be recent as in not in a dictionary yet kind of recent)
10) Borrowing : a word is taken from another language and adopted into the host language eg. sushi, tres
11) Folk Etymology : a naive interpretation of a word, using the wrong term for a concept ... the only example the prof gave was "per say" instead of "per se" and i'm at a loss for any others...
Thanks so much for reading all of that, i hope you're feeling generous!
