Hi, I am so completely confused with Morphology. Are none of the following words inflection nor derivation? I think they are all base words with bound morphemes/suffix & prefix
complete word base suffix prefix
portable port able
sanction sanc tion
flexible flex ible
modernise modern ise
organise organ ise
inaccurate accurate in
celebrate celeb rate
circumcision cirucmcis ion
Or, can I split modern and ise because modern is a free morpheme and say that modern and modernise is a derivation? Then I cannot split organ and ise because the word organ and organise do not have the same meaning?
Can anyone help me with what the following means?
Open categories are free routes & bound roots.
Morpheme has internal stability as nothing can be interposed with a morpheme and they are internally indivisible?
How do I know how to recognise a single sound or a group of sounds as representing a morpheme?
Iím so confused does anyone know where I can study this subject on the Internet, Iíve been looking for days?
Thank you very much to anyone who can help me.
