The latter he referred to as the 'juxtapositional' va­ riety. By that he meant that the elements of an expression, sometimes by virtue of repeated use, were simply frozen into their naturally juxtaposed syntactic positions (cf. Picone 1992a: 13-16). Consequently, juxtapositional compounds can be thought of as being 'phrasal' or 'syntagmatic' (cf. Bloomfield's classificatory gradations for compounds: 'syntactic, semi-syn­ tactic, and asyntactic', 1984 [1933]:233-235). For the sake of continuity, rather than adopting these other terms, I will follow Darmesteter in adhering to his specialized definition of 'juxtaposition'.
