Neste estudo analisam-se os compostos nominais do Português Europeu
construídos segundo os esquemas Verbo-Nome (VN), Nome-Nome (NN),
Nome-preposição-Nome (NprepN) e Nome-Adjectivo (NA). No capítulo I,
problementatizam-se as fronteiras da composição. No capítulo II estudam-se,
em termos morfológicos e sintáctico-semânticos, os constituintes internos
das unidades em apreço e em III, 2. procede-se à distribuição de
constituintes e produtos por áreas léxico-conceptuais. Em III.3 estuda-se a
estrutura interna dos compostos, considerando as noções de núcleo, de
endocentrismo e de exocentrismo. As relações sintáctico-semânticas que se
instituem entre os constituintes dos compostos enfatizam-se em III. 4. Por
fim, propõe-se a organização de unidades do corpus de acordo com diferentes
níveis de composicionalidade (cap. III, 5.). A análise efectuada conduz a
uma concepção renovada de nome composto. Este é entendido como uma unidade
plurilexemática que, sendo caracterizada pela cristalização estrutural e
semântica,é armazenada como um todo na mente dos falantes.

Apesar da aparente heterogeneidade do corpus, a análise da estrutura
interna dos compostos permite verificar que os respectivos constituintes
estabelecem entre si diferentes relações gramaticais - coordenação,
subordinação completiva e subordinação modificativa. A organização dos
compostos por três níveis de composicionalidade sintáctica e semântica
revela-se também operacional para uma parte substancial dos dados analisados.

In this study we analyse the nominal compounds from European Portuguese
formed according to the patterns Verb-Noun (VN), Noun-Noun (NN),
Noun-preposition-Noun (NprepN) and Noun-Adjective (NA). In chapter I we
examine the boundaries of compounding. In chapter II we study the internal
constituents of compounds in morphological, syntactic and semantic terms.
In III.2 we distribute the constituents and the products by different
lexical-conceptual areas. In III.3 we analyse the internal structure of
compounds, considering the notions of head, endocentrism and exocentrism.
The syntactic and semantic relations between the constituents of compounds
are analysed in III.4. Finally, we suggest the organisation of data
according to different levels of compositionality.

The study done leads to a renewed notion of nominal compound, understood as
a plurilexematic unit that is stored in one's mental lexicon and that is
also characterised by different levels of structural and semantic

In spite of the apparent heterogeneity inherent to data, the analysis of
the internal structure of compounds permits us to verify that the internal
constituents are linked by different grammatical relations: coordination,
completive subordination and modificative subordination. The organization
of compounds in three levels of syntactic and semantic compositionality
appears to be an operative strategy for an important part of data under
