Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides an overview of the data of compounding in Hungarian, pointing out some controversial issues concerning both the empirical data and the analysis of certain types of compounds. In establishing the types of compounds, the discussion focuses on productive root compounds. This survey is followed by a discussion of deverbal compounds, concentrating on features that are typical of Hungarian. A separate section is devoted to the discussion of pchapter verbs, which have some features in common with compounds. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion of some residual problems such as inflection and compounding, derivation outside compounding, exocentric compounds, and coordinative compounds.

Keywords: Hungarian compounds, compounding, productive root compounds, deverbal compounds, pchapter verbs, inflection, exocentric compounds, coordinative compounds
