Neoclassical compounds and language registers


Neoclassical compounds are special in French morphology. With regard to their final elements, they are at the border of composition and derivation. If originally they were used to designate scientific or technical concepts, today they are commonly used in everyday language. In this paper, we will see how these different language registers come into play in the construction of these words containing neoclassical elements, both from a formal and from a semantic point of view.
