Composed Czech proper names

Representation of composed Czech names

In representations of Czech names with hyphens the second part of the name is suspended under the selected governing node and the hyphen is suspended under that second part. Only in few cases the governing node will be the first node in the string; this occurs in case this first node is "syntactically dominant", i.e. it is inflected and the second node need not be inflected, it is only an addition (e.g. in (2) we can say jsem z Plzně-město I am from Plzeň-město, i.e. Plzeň is "dominant").
