The morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit of form. A form in these cases a recurring discrete unit of speech. Morphemes occur in speech only as constituent parts of words, not independently, although a word may consist of single morpheme. Even a cursory examination of the morphemic structure of English words reveals that they are composed of morphemes of different types: root-morphemes and affixational morphemes. Words that consist of a root and an affix are called derived words or derivatives and are produced by the process of word building known as affixation (or derivation).

THE MORPHEMIC STRUCTURE OF THE WORD. TYPES OF MORPHEMES. ALLOMORPHS. Morpheme is the smallest two-facet language unit possessed both sound-form and meaning: they don’t possessed grammatical meaning. Lexical meaning with it denotational and conotational components may be found in morphemes several times. The denotational meaning is affixal morphemes, may be rather wage and abstract.

-er-‘the agent and the doer of the action’

-less-‘is absence or lack of smth’

Sometimes the lexical meaning and the part of speech meaning tend to blank.(e.g. movement)

Structural types of words.Word is the principal and basic unit of the language system, the largest on the morphologic and the smallest on the syntactic plane of linguistic analysis. It has been universally acknowledged that a great many words have a composite nature and are made up of morphemes, the basic units on the morphemic level, which are defined as the smallest indivisible two-facet language units.

The morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit of form. A form in these cases a recurring discrete unit of speech. Morphemes occur in speech only as constituent parts of words, although a word may consist of single morpheme. Even a cursory examination of the morphemic structure of English words reveals that they are composed of morphemes of different types: root-morphemes and affixational morphemes. Words that consist of a root and an affix are called derived words or derivatives and are produced by the process of word building known as affixation (or derivation).

The four types (root words, derived words, compound, shortenings) represent the main structural types of Modern English words, and conversion, derivation and composition the most productive ways of word building.

words can be classified into monomorphic and polymorphic. -Monomorphic or root-words consist of only one root-morpheme, e.g. small, dog, make, give, etc. -All polymorphic word fall into two subgroups: derived words and compound words – according to the number of root-morphemes they have. Derived words are composed of one root-morpheme and one or more derivational morphemes, e.g. acceptable. Compound words are those which contain at least two root-morphemes, the number of derivational morphemes being insignificant. There can be both root- and derivational morphemes in compounds as in pen-holder, light-mindedness, or only root-morphemes as in eye-ball.

Allomorph is a term, used to denote elements of a group, whose members constitute a structural unit of the language. They don’t differ in meaning but show a slight difference in sound form. An allomorph is a positional variant of a morpheme occurring in a specific environment and characterized by complementary distribution (when 2 linguistic variants can’t appear in the same environment).
