In some Germanic languages, like Norwegian, words can be produced by concatenation of other words. When these compound words are frozen expressions, we just have to list them into dictionaries. When they are free combinations, on the other hand, their productivity makes it impossible to describe them exhaustively by means of a list. To solve this problem, we present in this paper an automatic procedure for analysing such compound words in Norwegian. This procedure is based on the use of electronic dictionaries.
