In AG, the very lifestyles of this sort is staggering: its left-oriented constitution is going opposed to the right-oriented constitution of the compound procedure, within which there additionally exists a wide category of verb-final (V2) compounds (many of which show a similar agentive semantics). whereas prior reviews have privileged both the historic size or the evaluation of semantic and stylistic matters over a scientific research of V1 compounds, this e-book offers a entire corpus of appellative and onomastic varieties, that are studied vis-à-vis V2 ones. The diachronic size (how those compounds built from overdue PIE to AG after which inside AG) is mixed with the synchronic one (how they're utilized in particular contexts) in an effort to exhibit that, faraway from being anomalous, V1 compounds fill lexical gaps that may no longer, for special morphological and semantic purposes, be stuffed through extra ‘regular’ V2 ones.
