Derivation and Inflection

How can we call the words as derivational, as they do not change their grammatical class?

1. 'legal' (adj)-'illegal' (adj)
2. 'draw' (v)-'redraw' (v)
3. 'cover' (v)-'uncover' (v)

Syntacticians see any type of omission as Gapping and Discourse analysts see any type of omiss...

Personal name expansion

What it is called 'expanding personal names when we tell our names to others to write in forms?
e.g. ALBERT,
A for Angel, L for Lion, B for Bird, E for Easy, R for Rock and T for Tower.
