Abstract : In this paper, we present Compounds an intelligent tutoring system which can teach french students of English how to produce and understand lexicalised and newly formed compounds. This ITS must be able to detect the difficulties of each student and to provide him or her with an appropriate set of exercices to improve him or her weak points. Here, we focus on the creation of the expert model. We study different linguistic theories of the English compounding process and we build a representation of the expert model together with a generic model of the errors that French students make. We describe the computer implementation of these two elements.
