Abstract

The article is concerned the study of the peculiarities of the process of word-formation in modern English. New words appear constantly, most of them are formed by word-formation. In those languages where the process of compounding is available, it is a powerful means of replenishing the vocabulary and improving the grammatical structure of the language. Compounding in comparison with derivation is a system more active, mobile and open. Compounding is one of the most productive ways of word formation. Words with this method are formed by the addition of two stems.
