In etymology, back -formation is the process of creating a new lexeme by removing actual or supposed affixes. The resulting neologism is called a back -formation, a term coined by James Murray in 1889. (OED online preserves their first use of ' back formation' from 1889 in the definition of to burgle.) For example, the noun resurrection was borrowed from Latin , and the verb resurrect was then backformed hundreds of years later from it by removing the ion suffix. This segmentation of resurrection into resurrect + ion was possible because English had examples of Latinate words in the form of verb and verb+-ion pairs , such as opine/opinion. These became the pattern for many more such pairs , where a verb derived from a Latin supine stem and a noun ending in ion entered the language together, such as insert/insertion, project /projection, etc.
