Description The problematic of anteposition and postposition of the adjective in Portuguese nominal syntagmata is a question traditionally approached not very deeply and there have been scarce attempts of systematization, although it presents an interesting linguistic and didactic problem deserving attention. Using a corpus of literary language, the present article systematically (looking at different linguistic fields) analyses the factor influencing the process of the adjectives’ collocation inside the nominal syntagma. The results are confronted with the affirmations of several contemporary grammars and elaborated to present an integral approach of the problematic. The analysis of the corpus is preceded by a short revision of the grammars and their discourses about the definition and distinction of noun and adjective in Portuguese.
