The area of ​​foreign word-formation was neglected for a long time within German word-formation research. There are still numerous gaps concerning not only contemporary language, but especially historical language stages. The first part of this article offers a research report and the second part outlines a research program for future investigation of historical foreign word-formation in German, which aims at a diachronic, usage-based and systematic investigation of foreign morphemes (affixes and confixes, forms and functions) in a European context. Methodological questions as well as aspects of corpus design are also discussed. The possibilities and limitations of analysis are shown using the example of -ism.
