Abstract

Language patterns are more or less ‘productive’, depending on their lexical scope. An interdisciplinary approach is needed to compare attested productivity, in present-day language use as well as through history, to on-line and off-line language processing, and to measure the impact of personal variables. Only in this way can one arrive at a better understanding of what productivity is.
