The phonology of compounds
This chapter examines a number of phonological properties of compounds. These include the limitation of many phonological phenomena to the individual members of compounds, the application of others at the juncture of the members of compounds, and the distribution of prosodic properties over an entire compound. Other areas that involve phonological patterns within compounds, linking elements and rules applying within lexicalized items, are also briefly mentioned. Finally, the phonological constituent structure of different types of compounds is examined.
