The topic of the present article is a specific type of verbocentric compound nouns in English and Bulgarian, namely, the Verb + Noun pattern as in pickpocket and загоритенджера. The paper attempts to present a contrastive analysis with regard to the similarities and differences in the form and meaning of these combinations in the two languages. The analyzed compounds are also classified into thematic groups according to what they denote. This pattern is no longer productive in contemporary English and Bulgarian but some of these verbocentric compound nouns are still frequently used and have a specific stylistic effect.
