The aim of this paper is to present the morphological productivity of the Anglo-Saxon linguistics. In order to attain this objective, we intend to present first, a series of theoretical concepts about the lexical creativity in the sense of defining the phenomenon and identifying its forms of manifestation, all oriented towards the description of its effects on the general vocabulary of the language, and, therefore, towards the theoretical studies concerning the modernization of the languages, or, further more, to the formation, development and enrichment of some terminology and stylistic means of expression.
