compound: compound

The compound relation is used primarily for noun-noun compounds (for various verb and verb-object compounds, see compound:dir, compound:ext, compound:quant, compound:vo, and compound:vv). This applies to any nominal preceding and modifying another nominal unless the relationship between the two is a possessive one (see nmod). The latter nominal is typically the head of the compound.

Names preceding titles or relationship roles are also treated as noun compounds, as well as names of companies or institutions with internal combinations of proper nouns with regular nouns.

Internal compounding should always be parsed first. For example, in (3) the last two nouns 職業 介紹所 employment agency form a compound first before compounding with the proper noun 威威 Waiwai; but in (4), 警察 招募 police recruitment form a compound first before compounding further with 廣告 advertisement.
