ABSTRACT

This study is about the meaning structure of N1+N2 formation. N1+N2 structure is the most productive one in the formation of compound word. The formation principal of N1+N2 is divided into syntax formation and morphologic formation. The variation of passage structure to vocabulary represents the principal of syntax formation. The variation of passage structure ‘agaubang’ to N1+N2 structure ‘agabang’ is one of the example. The rule of compound noun formation represents the principal of morphologic formation. It is simple. That is, just the combination of nouns without the phonologic restriction is possible. N1+N2 structure is almost created in accordance with the rule of compound noun formation. N1+N2 is formally divided into equal formation and modify formation. But based on the possession of main meaning in N2, equal formation is not compound noun. modify formation is categorized by the relation of meaning. That is, it is categorized in accordance with whether N1+N2 is inclusive or reiterate or singular formation. This categorization have close relation about saisios. saisios has significance because this is producted according to the process of compound noun formation. Because of the trait of saisios which has close relation with genitive case in both diachronism and synchronism, it has similar outcome in N1+N2.
