Uncovering Implicit Information in Original Compounds.
Jullian, Paula
ELT Journal, v56 n4 p359-67 Oct 2002
Discusses problems presented by compounding to English-as-a-Foreign-Language learners whose first language does not make use of it. Focuses on the complexity of the grammar and meaning of original compounds, which convey implicit information for the reader to infer. Suggests activities carried out with upper intermediate and advanced students to help them understand and produce such units. (Author/VWL)
