Compounding in Czech

Adéla Kalužová

The first, introductory part of the paper will present most common approaches to the analysis and classification of compounds. It will also show some problems encountered when trying to distinguish compounds from words coined by other processes (e.g. derivation, borrowing). The second part will focus on data from the DeriNet database: we will show the methods we have so far used for compound detection, describe the resulting set of DeriNet compounds and suggest other possible ways to find more compounds in our data.
