Summary/Abstract: The monograph aims to provide a clear and concise insight into theoretical problems related to prefixation in modern Spanish. Besides the explanation of some phenomena that contradict the traditional definition of prefix as an unstressed morpheme that does not change the lexical category of the base, special attention is paid to the still open debate on the status of prefixation (i.e. if it can be considered a type of derivation or compounding) and to the problematic classification of the Greek and Latin bound roots (the so-called prefixoids).
