This paper analyzes the nature of the Indonesian noun + noun constructed noun phrase. Basically, there are two thoughts responding to the nature of Indonesia noun phrase, and compound words. First, there is no concept of compound words; it is only noun phrase that exist in Indonesian. Second, there is the concept of compound words in Indonesian. Believing that different words have different referents, accordingly noun phrase are also different from compound words. The empirical data employed in this paper proves it. It falsifies an assumption arguing that it does not exist compound words in Indonesian. The results of it demonstrate that the nature of the relationship of the interconstituent of noun + noun constructed Indonesian noun phrase can be classified into four characteristics. Those four are (1)ownership;(2)intendedness;(3)origin; and (4)ownership, about, and by.
