“Dual membership suffixes” represent a crucial structuring framework of English morphology with undeniable consequences within language’s lexical processement. This text aims to analyse some of the major results of recent research carried out on the criteria underlying this dichotomy, and to discuss if they can be applied to Portuguese suffixes, and under what conditions. Morphological and prosodic properties are convoked, as well as other idiosyncratic features of the suffixes and of the bases that are (pycho)linguisticaly relevant when they are selected by native Portuguese speakers
