This chapter starts the description of the history of Spanish compounding patterns whose head constituent appears on the right, by tackling specifically those that have adverbial non-heads. There are three main such patterns: [Adv + V]V, [Adv + A]A, and [Adv + N]N. As the examples, show, the three compound patterns form a natural cluster with related structure and meaning, and, very often, with derivational relationships. They also share a very early appearance and higher levels of productivity in the earliest periods, with waning vitality over time. After each of the three patterns is described individually, these connections are explored at some length (cf. Section 4.4).
