Compound Words

A compound word has at least two parts, and each part is, by itself, a separate word. Sunlight, for example, is formed by combining sun and light, and from that information we can make a good guess at what the word means. We could define it as “light that comes from the sun” or “light the sun give off”. Another example is overtime, a compound word formed from over and time.
