COMPOUND WORDS

Introduction:

Compound words are formed when two or more words are put together to form a new word with a new meaning. They can function as different parts of speech, which can dictate what form the compound takes on. For example, the word carry over is an open compound word when it’s used as a verb but it is a closed when used as a noun and an adjective.

Compound words fall within three categories:

1. Closed compound words are formed when two unique words are joined together. They don’t have a space between them and they are the type that generally comes to mind when we think of compound words. Example. Itself, today, bedroom ,blueprint.

2. Open compound words have a space between the words but when they are read together a new meaning is formed. Example. walking stick, drawing book, chess board,

Hyphenated compound words are connected by a hyphen. Example. Bare-foot, ice- cream.
