This volume is a collection of papers on typological and theoretical aspects of phrasal compounds. It is based on talks on this topic held during a workshop, funded by the DFG and the NSF, in June 2013 in Mannheim. The papers introduce new data from a number of languages like English, German, Italian, Greek, Turkish and some Turkic languages, and deal with this phenomenon from different theoretical perspectives, locating it on different levels of language and its interfaces. By comparing the phenomenon in different languages we seek to gain a better understanding of its structural, semantic and other properties.
