Morphology I morphemes and typology Keywords word morpheme af x stem root base content vs function morphemes bound vs free morphemes inflectional vs derivational morphemes lexeme paradigm analytic and synthetic isolating fusional and agglutinating languages 1 Morphemes and morphological analysis Can you divide the following words up into meaningful units What do the units do 1 horses D 1 1 39 1 1 39 quot enlarge teacher fastest Definitions 139 r Morphemes are the smallest meaningful units words are composed of there are several diiferent types 0 Free morphemes are morphemes that can stand alone as a word while bound morphemes cannot stand alone 0 Most bound morphemes are af xes which fall into two broad groups pre xes attaching to the beginning of the stem and suf xes attaching to the end of a stem 0 Morphemes with an independent meaning are called content morphemes while morphemes that only provide grammatical information are called function morphemes o Derivational morphemes are used to build new lexemes while in ectional morphemes only contribute to the in ectional paradigm of a lexeme o Lexemes are those words listed in the mental lexicon o en written in capital letters A paradigm lists all in ectional variants all word forms of a lexeme Identify all free and bound morphemes all af xes in the following words 2 wizard bluish unspeakable jinx cousin39s antidisestablishmentarianism quotAll bound morphemes are af xesquot Discuss on the basis of the following data 3 impose expose compose propose transpose induce introduce reduce produce adduce infer confer refer prefer transfer 2 In ection and derivation In English and many other languages as well both in ection and derivation usually occur through af xal modi cation of a base 0 base a general term the part af xes can be attached to o stem the part which remains if all in ectional suf xes are cut off used mainly in the context of in ectional morphology 0 root the irreducible core of a word with no in ectional nor derivational af xes attached to it roots can be free eg walk book sweet or bound such as duce as in reduce Identify root stem and base in the following words wizardry 5 magicians 6 removals 7 unfaithfulness 8 perceive 9 hexed Institut fUI AnglistikAruerkauistik PhilippsUniversitat Marburg WS 200506 Introductlon to Lrngulstlcs Anna Bauer Find all in ectional and

Can they stand alone free or bound function What kind of information do they encode lexical or grammatical production What kind of words are produced new lexical items or word forms position Are they pre x or suf x to the base Derivational vs in ectional morphemes Derivational morphemes often change the word class of their base and neither is their meaning always predictable nor are they llly productive ie not every member of a word class can take the morpheme cf intelligence vs cleverence In ectional morphemes on the other hand are llly productive thus eg s attaches to every verb to form the 3m person singular and they have a predictable meaning They do not bring about a change in word class but create new word forms of a lexeme When attached to a base in ectional suffixes follow a er derivational ones Consider the following words How many morphemes 7 give the type as well 7 do they consist of 20 legalisation reuni cation librarians disentanglement stepmother39s 3 Morphological Typology Languages dilTer systematically in the way in which they employ in ectional morphology Take a look at the data below to see some aspects of this variation The following sentences all have the same meaning How do they dilTer morphologically How many morphs can you find How many words are there 21 a they leam ed English 3rd PL pronoun learn PAST b ta men xue le Mandarin Chinese 3rd pron

there are few or no in ectional af xes Languages which make use of af xation are called synthetic languages They can be divided up into two nther types of languages Jsional and agglutinating languages In agglutinating languages there are clear morpheme boundaries every morpheme is expressed by one distinct morph In fusional languages morpheme boundaries may be blurred One morph may express several morphemes there can be stem changes etc 2
