Abstract: The article explores some characteristic features of English nominal nouns in modern economy-related news articles. The rapid development of innovative technologies creates the need for new words in order to describe some novel concepts, ideas or products. Thus, various word formation processes occur in a language to meet this need. Compounding is considered to be one of the most important and highly productive ways of forming new words in the English language. As long as compound words have the ability to convey information in a short and concise way, they are frequently used in news headlines and articles. Using compound words, and especially solid or hyphenated ones, in news articles may serve the purpose of avoiding sentences that are too long. Compound nouns or nominal compounds are considered to be one of the most common and prevalent types of compounds in the English language. Therefore, the focus of our study is mainly on the analysis of compound nouns in modern English economic news articles and the identification of the characteristic features of these lexical units. The given paper examines compound nouns from orthographic, structural and semantic points of view and presents the nominal compounding patterns existing in the present-day economic news articles as well as the classification according to the structure of immediate constituents of compound nouns.

Key words: compounding, English compound nouns, nominal compounds, economic news articles.
