The aim of the paper is (1) to point out the specificities of French nominal terms with respect to prepositional complements and adjectival adjuncts; and (2) to contrast the internal structure of nominal terms with that of common language NPs. This analysis is used to elaborate the rule-based module of an automatic term extractor, the main aim of which is to find nominal terms in a specialised text and to filter out common language nominal expressions.
