I am a postgraduate student of English Linguistics, and my main interests are Semantics and Word formation. My PhD project concerns lexical blending, i.e. the type of word formation process whereby (typically) two words are fused in a creative way resulting in expressions such as 'fantabulous' (fantastic + fabulous) and 'smog' (smoke + fog).
