Abstract
As basic building blocks of language, words need to be compact so that they are under rather strict spatial constraints. Thus a supralexical entity often gets depleted when it morphs into a word, i.e. when it gets (end) osmosed into the cramped space of a word. This seems to be especially the case in the formation of compound words and of derivatives thereof. Building upon Park (1992, 2001, 2002, 2003), the present paper takes a look at this (end)osmotic depletion and related phenomena with reference to English.
