[EN] Compound with verbal head in Welsh and the problem of -gar derivatives.
It is remarkable that Welsh (and probably also all Celtic languages) has kept all the types of nominal composition, given the other typological changes which happened in this dialect of Indo-European. The author takes the example of Welsh compounds with verbal head (Greek type φερέ-οικος, βου-πλήξ Vedic trasá-dasyu- et viśva-víd-) : their formation, syntactical behaviour, and the productivity of two sub-types are shown with significant examples. A special case, the derivatives with -gar, is discussed at length, because it is still a living formation. Its semantic ambiguity is explained by its double origin.
