The paper presents a procedure for interpretation of English compounds and lkn" automatic translation of such compounds into Slavic languages and French. In tile target languages, a compound nominal is as a role to be rendered by an NP with an adjective or genitive attribute, or with an attrilmtive participle construction. The model is based on Bierwisch's theory of word formation, which in turn is inspired by categorial grammar. The procedure is applied to a specific domain (asthma research).
