Aims and Scope
This work discusses the relationship between word formation, syntax, and lexicon based on an examination of adjective-noun compounds and adjective-noun phraseologisms in German. It describes the semantic and morphosyntactic characteristics of such compounds from a construction grammar perspective. The analysis specifically focuses on the ways that these compounds are related to each other and how they are represented in the mental lexicon.
