What is it about?
This article gives a short overview of the means of word-formation in the Nenets language. Nenets is a typical agglutinative language displaying a number of inflecting features. The latter however applies to the word-formation only marginally. The most frequent mode of word-formation is derivation, the less frequent one is composition. Nenets almost exclusively uses suffixes for derivation, prefixation is a rather marginal phenomenon.
