Even when different nomenclatures were used in the analysis as the base, it is observed that Anaku Igbo tend towards the derivational morphology with the inflectional as supportive for appropriate processes.
Also, since the present study deals with advanced learners, the present author decided to focus on derivational suffixation which is normally considered to be the most difficult aspect of word formation (Nagy, Diakidoy & Anderson, 1993: 156).

Following a similar line to that of Garcia Velasco in this same volume, Portero Munoz devotes the second part of her work to explaining the suitability of FDG to account for the swarm-alternation by means of a non-derivational syntactic approach which overcomes most of the problems underlying the derivational approaches rooted in the field of lexical semantics such as, for instance, that of Levin and Rappaport Hovav (1998).
In addition, the current evidence focuses on Dutch and English, Germanic languages with a very different morphology from Spanish, whose derivational morphology is particularly rich.
