PhD Project

Metonymical Processes in Word Formation

In my doctoral thesis, I’m going to develop an analysis of compounds in terms of frames. Frames, in this context, are understood as recursive attribute-value structures. In a first step, the attributes that nominal frames contain are deduced by a corpus-based study on metonymies. Afterwards, these attributes are used to decompose several construal patterns that occur in the interpretation of compounds.
