Short description of contents:
This chapter is dedicated to parasynthetic compounding, i.e. a word formation phenomenon consisting in the merger of two lexical stems (forming a non-attested compound) with a derivational suffix. On the basis of several classes of data, pertaining to Slavic and Romance, we outline a formal analysis of the phenomenon at issue showing that a constructionist account, recently developed within the Construction Morphology framework, cannot successfully apply to a relevant set of compounds. We show that a configurational analysis of these compound-affixed forms formulated along the lines of Ackema and Neeleman (2004) and implying a severe mapping between the morpho-syntactic and semantic structure, is not only able to account for the challenging data at issue, but also refines our comprehension of the synthetic compounding phenomena commonly attested in most I.E. languages.
