Abstract
This final paper deals with word-formation in English and Russian. It analyzes the differences, as well as the similarities, between various word-formation processes in the aforementioned languages and explains the semantic, syntactic and prosodic features of new words. Moreover, an overview of basic notions needed for the study will be introduced in order to offer a better understanding of morphemes and the classification of affixes in Russian and English. Furthermore, word-formation in English will be further explained by analyzing affixational (suffixation, prefixation, infixation and multiple affixation) and non-affixational (conversion, truncation, blending, abbreviation and compounding) processes while providing examples. Finally, word-formation in Russian will be introduced as well, and expounded by analyzing morphological (suffixation, prefixation, postfixation, multiple affixation, compounding and univerbation) and non-morphological (abbreviation, conversion and fusion) processes.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Ovaj završni rad bavi se tvorbom riječi u engleskom i ruskom. Analizira razlike, kao i sličnosti, između raznih tvorbenih načina u već prije spomenutim jezicima i objašnjava semantičke, sintaktičke i prozodijske značajke novih riječi. Štoviše, pregled osnovnih pojmova potrebnih za rad bit će predstavljen kako bi se bolje objasnili morfemi te podjela afikasa u ruskom i engleskom. Nadalje, tvorba riječi u engleskom bit će dodatno objašnjena analizirajući procese afiksacije (sufiksacija, prefiksacija, infiksacija te višestruka afiksacija) i ne-afiksacije (preobrazba, izrezivanje, srastanje, kraćenje i slaganje) uz primjere. Konačno, bit će prestavljena i tvorba riječi u ruskom, očitovana analizom morfoloških (sufiksacija, prefiksacija, postfiksacija, višestruka afiksacija, slaganje i univerbacija) te ne-morfoloških (kraćenje, preobrazba i fuzija) načina tvorbe.
