Abstract

The article discusses noun incorporation in English — that is, expressions which include a noun in the verbal constituent of an utterance, as in It’s time to legacy build contrasted with It’s time to build a legacy. It concludes that noun incorporation is well established in present-day English, that it has many functions, that it is used productively as an alternative to other constructions, and under definable constraints.
