SAEZ, Leopoldo. Chupa- + S in the Spanish of Chile. Estud. filol. [online]. 2010, n.46, pp.119-136. ISSN 0071-1713.

V + N compounds have a long and uninterrupted tradition in the Romance languages. They make up one of the productive and usual procedures for the creation of neologisms, predominantly of a popular character. In Chilean Spanish three compounds of chupa- have consolidated their use and have spread geographically and socially: chupasangre, chupamedia(s) and chupacabra(s). Others have less diffusion and frequency of use, are limited to specific actvity oriented groups or are marked as regards social stratification and valuation: chupatinta, chupacabras 2, chu-pamangas, chupapatas, chupapico, chupacabeza, chupacalceta. For studying current Spanish, Internet, thanks to search engines like Google open huge possibilities, complementing linguistic corpora like CREA or CORDE.

Palabras clave : Morphology; Word formation; Lexicology; Compounds; Chilean Spanish; Internet; Google.
