INTRODUCTION

The semantic representations of nominal compounds have been studied,

either directly or indirectly by linguists & AI researchers. In an early

study, Lees developed an impressive taxonomy of the forms. More recently,

Levi & Downing have attempted to capture the linguistic regularities

evidence by nominal compounding. The essential feature of this form of

modification is that the underlying semantic relationship which exists

between the two concepts is not explicit. Moreover, a large numbered of

relationships might, in principal, exist between the two concepts. The

selection of the most appropriate one can depend, in general, on a host of

semantic, pragmatic and contextual factors.

Definition of Nominal Compounds

Sometimes noun and a noun equivalent or a noun phrases are joined together

in a compact manner in order to express clearly and precisely a person or a

Nominal Compound.

The advantage of compounding mostly lies in making a lengthy sentence into

a single composite form. Many sentences may be reduced into single word by

way of applying this method.

The basic idea behind formation of compounding lies in an intention to

abridge the expanded words.
