Unit 7


Словосложение (word-composition) - это образование новой (производной) основы путем соединения двух уже существующих основ, обычно без изменения их формы.

Так, например, существительное steamship (пароход) было образовано путем словосложения из двух существительных: steam (пар) и ship (корабль). Словосложение употребляется и в русском языке, где в отличие от английского для соединения производящих основ обычно используются особые соединительные гласные: пар- о -ход.


Составные существительные (Compound Nouns)

Образование существительных при помощи словосложения. Сложные существительные образуются чаще всего из двух основ cуществительных:


rail (рельс) + way (путь) = railway (железная дорога)
text (текст) + book (книга) = textbook (учебник)


Подобных сложных существительных в английском языке очень много: apple-tree (яблоня), steamship (пароход), airport (аэропорт), rainbow (радуга), ice-cream (мороженое), arm-chair (кресло), seashore (берег моря) и др. Сложные существительные пишутся слитно или через дефис.

При раздельном написании двух существительных подряд первое из них обычно является определением ко второму, а все вместе - словосочетанием, а не сложным словом.


a gold watch золотые часы словосочетание
a goldsmith ювелир сложное слово


Сложные существительные образуются также путем соединения основ прилагательного и существительного: black + board = blackboard; holiday, grandfather, gentleman, sweetheart.
