    In the present study we will examine the lexicographical practises employed in word formation; in particular, the lexical and neoclassical compounds found in early text up until the present. Thus, our purpose is to propose a new way of handling these constructions as part of their dictionary entry by emphasizing how to lexicographically resolve the problems caused by compound structures.
