Abstract

The distinction between endocentric and exocentric is usually taken as an important semantic factor in classifying compounds. But the same division does not appear to be used in classifying derivatives. This may be because exocentricity has no obvious correlates in derivation; but it is argued here that its correlates in compounding are illusory, and that there are alternative, and probably more explanatory, ways of dealing with exocentrics.
