Based on pre-existing elements in Spanish, new color names can be obtained adding suffixes, using compositional or para-synthetic patterns or through syntactic structures. This work focuses on the analysis of different morphosyntactic mechanisms that can be used to produce new chromatic adjectives from concrete examples taken from the CorLexIn corpus. Our aim is to provide a lexicographical, referential and documentary perspective of each case, focusing on the particularities that they may present.
