Transcript of On Morphology
Comparison and segmentation: internal constituent parts of a word.
Helpful diagram to distinguish morpheme types
Same or different?
Hierarchical Structure of Derived Words
Input: part of speech to which an affix may attach, e.g. able to verbs but not to nouns; adjustable but not to peopleable
Free morphemes: words by themselves (cat, dog, book, walk, any others?)
Bound morphemes: pre, in, un, de, ing, any others?
Morphology: words and word formation
Mental dictionary: internalized
Only few instances of inflection in English
Part of speech
Different grammatical forms of words:
Forms of words, not entirely new words
Some roots cannot stand by themselves:
infer, confer, refer, defer, prefer and transfer, what's the root? can it stand by itself?
Semantic content: identifiable meaning
Different part of speech
Different grammatical function
Example: That boy
Output: words formed after the derivational affix, create same part of speech, e.g. breakable, debatable, adjectives, any other examples?
