Task 1: How to Coin a New Word
In each of the following quotations from Shakespeares plays one method of word-formation (either affixation, conversion or compounding) is put to use. Name the new word-form and mark the correct answer!
Example 1: The Tempest. I. i.
Boatswain. [ ] If you can command these elements to
silence, and work the peace of the present, we will
not hand a rope more; [ ]
Example 2: King John. V.ii.
Philip the Bastard. [ ] No: know the gallant monarch is in arms
And like an eagle o'er his aery towers,
To souse annoyance that comes near his nest.
And you degenerate, you ingrate revolts,
You bloody Neroes, ripping up the womb
Of your dear mother England, blush for shame;
For your own ladies and pale-visaged maids
Like Amazons come tripping after drums, [...]
The word-formation process that is applied in example 2 is called:)
( ) conversion
Example 3: The Merchant of Venice. I. i.
Salarino. ( ) Nature hath framed strange fellows in her time:
Some that will evermore peep through their eyes
And laugh like parrots at a bag-piper,
And other of such vinegar aspect
That they'll not show their teeth in way of smile,
Though Nestor swear the jest be laughable.
