Abstract and Keywords
This chapter discusses the question of universals in derivational morphology, an issue that has been paid little attention. First, methodological questions are raised, including some of the obstacles in looking for universals of derivation. The next section reviews some of the past proposals for universals of derivation. The final section assesses some of these proposed universals in light of the material assembled in this volume.
