Abstract

On the basis of a survey of types of exocentric compound found in a large number of languages, a small set of basic types is established. Even one of these is considered marginal. These basic types are described and exemplified, with problems of nomenclature and description being discussed. The marginality of exocentricity is discussed. The potential for other, rarer, types is considered.
