Summary/Abstract: This monograph is a product of the 20th International Conference of the Commission on Word Formation of the International Committee of Slavists. Entitled “Word Formation in the Communicative Space”, the conference was held in Warsaw on 8–10 September 2020 by the Institute of Slavic Studies, Polish Academy of Sciences, with the proceedings taking place online. The participants were 29 word formation scholars from academic centres in Austria, Belarus, Bosnia, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine. This testifies to the topicality of the proposed subject matter and a considerable interest enjoyed by Slavic and Slavist word formation. This volume brings together most of the presentations sent in by the participants. The subjects touched upon in the volume correspond to the theme of the conference, focusing on a number of topical issues related to both the present and the past, the most important of which include: word-formative innovations, types of and changes in mechanisms of neologism generation, the phenomenon of linguistic globalisation, and pragmatic aspects of language. The volume’s rich and diverse subject matter is unified by the adoption of a communicational perspective.
