Komposition und Kompositionalität [Composition and Compositionality]
Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der semantischen Dekodierung von Substantivkomposita
This book systematically applies the so-called principle of compositionality to
substantive composition and investigates whether this semantic principle can be
judged a sufficient basis for the understanding of unknown terms. The central
question concerns how far the meaning of a substantive composite with two
nominal elements can be ‘calculated’ from the meaning of its constituents.
Using various empirical studies, the author shows that the principle of
compositionality must be reformulated.
