This study is purposed to describe what the forms of compound words are and what the meaning is by using Yule’s theory and Nick Riemer’ theory. The criteria are used in this study are orthographic, phonological, syntactic and semantics in nature which to make the distinction between compounds and phrases. This study uses a descriptive qualitative view. The source of data is text or words. The subject in this study is Arabic forms of compound words. The data is collected by using the documentation method. There are several procedures to collect the data: reading the CNN Arabic newspaper, reading the dictionaries, selecting compound words, and retyping. The data is analyzed by using tree diagram Plag’s theory and identifying meaning using Nick Riemer’s theory. The analysis reveals that the most reliable linguistics criteria: a) adjacency shows that no intervening elements can be inserted between the head and the non-head of compounds, b) referential reveals that insertion is allowed in the phrase. Based on the form of a compound word, there are noun compound, verb compound and conjunctive compound words.
