Abstract and Keywords

This chapter maps various views of compounding from the ‘onomasiological’ perspective, a revived theoretical approach with a long tradition, especially in Central Europe and Germany, and is structured in a historical order. In each section, a linguist and his overall model are presented, and the definition and subtypes of compounds according to the respective model are then given. The linguists whose models are presented are Miloš Dokulil, Ján Horecky, Pavol Štekauer, Andreas Blank, Peter Koch, and Joachim Grzega. The chapter also briefly discusses a number of phenomena related to compounds, and illustrates the various theoretical works with examples from the original works and some additional examples from English. It concludes with a brief summary juxtaposing the various models.

Keywords: onomasiology, compounds, Miloš Dokulil, Ján Horecky, Pavol Štekauer, Andreas Blank, Peter Koch, Joachim Grzega
