This chapter summarizes research on the production, interpretation, and acquisition of noun-noun compounds.

The same kinds of analogical generalizations are in evidence in different domains of languages processing, from language acquisition, to visual word processing.

Keywords:   analogy, morphology, noun-noun compounds, morphological families, lexical representations
