As part of ongoing research to investigate the qualities of the language of Dickens from the point of view of collocation, the aim of this paper is to examine usual or familiar collocations and unique or peculiar collocations of -ly manner adverbs in his works. Dickens’s unique or creative collocations are discussed quantitatively and stylistically from three viewpoints; figurative collocation, subject-oriented collocation, and hybrid collocation. In order to carry out a thorough investigation into this subject and to consider Dickens’s language within the context of the development of the language of fiction and the history of English, I have made use of the OED2 on CD-ROM, as well as electronic texts and concordances of Dickens’s works.

141 words resulting from innovations internal to Jews from Gascony. They are often hybrid, having a borrowed root to which a suffix was added locally. One can observe that numerous lexical innovations result from the addition of French suffixes to Hebrew roots, for example, -age, -on (both serving

Greek-speaking area of southern Italy and that its emergence may have been triggered by the long-lasting contact between Romance and Greek. 16 Crucially, in a historical scenario of bilingualism (Fanciullo 1996, 2001), unagreement would be a morpho-syntactic hybrid configuration resulting from the

Cappadocian a and b, on the other hand, develop a mixed system of inflection. In these dialects, fusion, agglutination and a third, hybrid system, which combines properties

distinction between participle and internal constructions can be blurred in some cases, however. It appears that the close functional link between the two can give rise to the use of a hybrid construction type. Compare, for instance, the relative clause found in (21a) with the participle construction in (21b

correct, but I feel that they are not always suffi cient for the proper selection and registering of neologisms. First, the “press criterion”, I think, restricts the range of text types and genres to a great extent as it excludes, for example, oral texts (i.e. radio, television) and hybrid texts like the

considered the outcome to be the epitome of false nationalism: a hybrid of petty self-conceit, militant chauvinism, and cultural conservatism C.G.
