Question Description

Morphology

Morphology is the study of the structure of words.

In phonology we saw that sounds contrast with each other for the purpose of distinguishing words. But how do sounds convey meaning?

What are the smallest units of language that can convey meaning?

Do these units have structure?

How do these units combine with each other? The smallest unit of language that conveys an

identifiable meaning is the morpheme

Morphemes combine together to form words.
