On Premodified Terms in Five Specialized Dictionaries3
Premodification is a syntactic function of the noun phrase (NP) and can have several types of modifiers: adjectives (Adj) as in example 1, past and present participles (PP/PresP) and as in examples 2 and 3, and a noun (N) as in example 4.
(1)total one human genomic DNA
(2)inherited mitochondrial DNA diseases
(3)circulating monoclonal protein
(4)vehicle control cell growth
Equally, other lexical categories can be found and even some grammar structures in the premodification. In example 5, there is an adverbial phrase which, as a whole, modifies the head of the noun phrase. In example 6, it is a verbal form as premodifier, and in example 7, a prepositional phrase.
