Morphology : Grammatical aspects of language

Morphology is the study of word forms and word classifications. A morpheme is the minimal linguistic unit and is an arbitrary union of a sound and a meaning that cannot be further analyzed (Fromkin,2007).

Examples : one morpheme   :  boy

                     two morpheme   :  boy+ish

                     three morpheme : boy+ish+ness
