- The purpose of this paper is to criticize Roper and Siegel (1978) and to propose a compound formation rule for English. Roeper and Siegel make distinction between root and verbal compounds, and to derive the latter
they propose the First Sister Principle. This principle, however, is shown to be both too strong and too weak. To derive English compound nouns, it is proposed to concatenate any kind of lexically independent nouns. The overgenerated output will be filtered by several output constraints, such as phonological, morphological, and semantic. The First Sister Principle will be used as a semantic filter and the semantic interpretation of the output compound nouns will also be done by the Variable R Conditíon proposed by Allen (1 978) . The level mechanism proposed in Lexical Phonology will be used as a well-formedness condition as in Sproat (1985).
