I understand there are at least two distinct problems there:
1. How is the process which produces your Akzentkomposita to be
2. Once we know the type of grammatical boundary separating/joining the
two components in a unit, what is the standard boundary symbol for it?
Ad 1: From the examples that you provide, it does not appear that it is
a kind of compounding. (Consequently, I would not call the products
X-komposita, no matter what X is.) Still from your examples, it would
appear that the process is (some kind of) clisis. I take the liberty of
sending the link to my most recent article (just accepted for
publication), devoted to exactly this kind of problem:
Ad 2: If it is clisis, the = symbol you are using is standard. If it
were compounding, you would use the + symbol. If it is a new kind of
process, with a new kind of grammatical boundary, we would have to
deploy another symbol. There are plenty of as yet unused symbols around;
how about ⧧ (Unicode 29e7) ?
