    Literal and Non-literal compounds

    Hello,

    I am looking for examples of literal (blackbird) and non-literal (egghead) compounds. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Re: Literal and Non-literal compounds

    O.K.

    So...a literal compound means that there are two words put together, that can stand on their own, to form a new word, that also can stand on it's own. A non-literal compound means there are two words put together, again that can stand on their own, to form a new word that is not related to the seperate words. Again, any help would be much appreciated.
