ounds like coffee-pot-fresh, dew-bright and lemon-fragrant, often seen in advertising, are particularly vivid..A. Poe created a great amount of compound words in his literally works many of them not purely ornamental or pretentious, not humorous or satirical, but poetic, evocative, fancy-embodying, according to the "power of words" at their suggestive best, as he expressed it; many of these come from his poems. The list of compounds is full of these fantasies of his creative auctorial spirit. The compounds in E. Poes prose and poetry are humorous, often satiric, sometimes shocking in its novelty, and not essentially contributory to the total "power of words» of the English language.derivation with composition, the analysis shows that while a different conceptual process is involved, composition also includes large areas where it fades into prefixation and suffixation. Finally, derivation is contrasted with conversion which generally requiring a larger degree of contextual support than derivation, and this is regarded as the major reason for the continuing productivity of derivational word-formation in English., we can conclude that the most productive way of word building in E.A. Poes prose and poetry is affixation. This result professes the hypothesis of our diploma thesis. The parity statistics of word building processes in E.A. Poes prose and poetry is presented in Appendix 2.
