Transcript of Morphological Typology
Typology Let's begin... Example: So far, so good? What the h... is an affix ? An affix is a word element that can be attached to a base or root to form a new word. Affixes are bound morphemes.
Examples: dislike, dogs, hardly OK, so what's a morpheme? A morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit in the grammar of a language.
There are free morphemes and bound morphemes. Un kind ly Free

Example: Combine affixes by 'squeezing' them together, making them difficult to identify. Fusional affixes can carry a single meaning or several, such as person, gender, number or case. The term comes from the Latin verb 'agglutinare', which means 'to glue together'. Most words in these languages are formed by joining morphemes together. 1. How would you classify, based on the exposition, the following languages: English, Spanish, French. 2. Opinion: which type of languages are the hardest to learn and why? Is the characterization of languages according to the extent in which words in the language are clearly divisible into individual morphemes. Languages can be classified according to their degree of: Also known as inflectional languages.
High morpheme-per-word ratio (>1:1).
Also called analytical languages.
Low morpheme-per-word ratio (1:1).
Fusion: from fusional to agglutinative. 'coz we ain't making up this stuff!!
