Constraints on compounds and incorporation
This chapter examines the status of a type of compounding often cited as a construction that straddles the boundary between morphology and syntax. Noun incorporation constructions in Kapampangan, Mohawk, and Central Alaskan Yup’ik Eskimo are evaluated with respect to the No Phrase Constraint and the Lexical Integrity Hypothesis. Though they share certain fundamental properties, the constructions differ in crucial ways, reflecting differing stages of diachronic development.
