Superlexemic words are of various types, including portmanteau words (such as French du), compound words (such as dog breeder), and clitic groups of the bound-word type (such as I’d), among others. The nodes with which a superlexemic word is associated needn’t form a syntactic constituent. Moreover, a compound’s morphological structure needn’t be isomorphic to its syntactic structure; in the Sanskrit expression (), for example, the NP am · hór ‘distress (abl sg)’ is syntactically dependent on urú‘distance, relief’ but is not itself part of the compound uru-cákrih· ‘causing relief (nom sg)’.
