Summary

The book investigates compounds and phrases from a structural, semantic-functional and, crucially, cognitive perspective. Maintaining the compound-phrase distinction, the author argues that compounds are by their nature more appropriate to be stored in the mental lexicon than phrases. The analysis focuses on compounds and phrases that are composed of either an adjective and a noun or two nouns in German, French and English.
