Abstract

This chapter continues with the treatment of head-final compounding by focusing on three patterns whose non-head is a nominal. Among them, the most productive are adjectival [N + A]A patterns. There is also a truly archaic verbal [N + V]V pattern, with very few examples and virtually no present productivity. Although some of its exponents are related to the [N + A]A pattern, it has not shared its productivity or evolution. The last head-final pattern is [N + N]N, whose nominal head on the right is related to the verbal or adjectival classes mentioned above. For [N + N]N head-final patterns whose head is not deverbal, readers are directed to Chapter 6, where those patterns are explored together with their head-initial counterparts.
