Suspended Compound

Pengertian Suspended Compound

Suspended compound adalah rangkaian compound noun atau compound adjective yang bagian yang sama pada kata-kata tersebut ditunda hingga ujung rangkaian.

Setiap member pada suspended compound biasanya memiliki two-word atau three-word modifier dimana kata pertamanya berbeda namun sisanya sama. Hyphen (“-“) dan space (spasi) selalu mengikuti setiap member yang sebagian elemennya disembunyikan.

Jangan berlebihan menggunakan suspended compound karena pembaca mungkin terganggu karena harus menunggu sampai akhir untuk mengetahui apa yang dibicarakan.
