A confound in examining specifically morphological relations is the natural meaning relatedness between morphological relatives. Therefore, we examine the effects of semantic transparency/opacity on English compound recognition. We focus on three types of compounds: transparent (TT) compounds such as <em>farmyard</em>, and partially transparent compounds with an opaque modifier (OT) such as <em>strawberry</em> or an opaque head (TO) such as <em>airline</em>. The results show that prior activation of a constituent facilitates recognition of that constituent in a compound. The results further show that this happens regardless of semantic transparency. These results provide new evidence for a morpheme-based approach to compound processing, in specifically the auditory modality.</p>
