Description The article systematically examines the main semantic aspects intervening in the delimitation of Spanish compounds against derived (prefixed or suffixed) words and phraseological units. Our goal is to demonstrate that the semantic criterion is important, if not crucial, for determining the character of numerous borderline lexical units, but, at the same time, that the gradualness of the semantic oppositions in question and the inevitable subjectivity in their interpretation discourage ascribing absolute validity to this approach.
