Leaving aside the theoretical disquisitions, the component of the language in which new significants are "manufactured" for new meanings, becomes a crossroads between the morphology (derivative), syntax and phonology domains. All of them contribute in the process of forming the lexical units that will be integrated, once created, in the lexical component or lexicon. The creative potential that these morphological procedures have and their importance for maintaining the vitality of the language have been amply demonstrated in the various studies that have been carried out for this purpose, but never with such precision and vision of the future, in terms of their possible applications, as in the work that the Text & Information Processing (TIP) of the University of Las Palmas of Gran Canaria has been doing throughout these last years. In fact, the present study is the third of a set of works that the TIP has dedicated to the derivative morphology of Spanish. If in the previous two the prefixes and suffixes morphological relations were addressed, in the latter the object of study are the morphological procedures known as "parasynthesis", that is, those that allow the creation of a new lexical unit through the simultaneous incorporation of a prefix and a suffix to a lexical base or word already given.
