Many examples of metaphorical nominal compounds can only be understood in a larger context, mostly in the text in which they are being created and used. In my contribution I aim at exemplifying and explaining how the reader can recognize the textual elements which are important for the understanding of the new metaphorical compounds and which relations are possible between the metaphorical compound and textual signs.
