Cognitive Dimensions of Anteriority in Locative Prefixes

The Functional-Lexematic Model (FLM) assumes that, together with non-derived, primary vocabulary, affixal units constitute a part of the lexicon of natural languages, which ultimately leads to the configuration of an autonomous Word-Formation Component (WFC). Functional- Lexematic approaches to the analysis of lexical meaning have largely been restricted to the domains of primary vocabulary. Encouraged by this background, the description expounded in this paper seeks to explore the suitability of the Functional-Lexematic cognitive-semantic approach to account for the interpretation of the meaning of prefixal morphemes within the derived lexicon of present-day English.
