    Default morphological processes

    can anyone help me out with this..

    tell me if im wrong..
    ungentlemanly
    step 1 compounding of gentle (adj) + man (n) ---> gentleman (N)
    step 2 class changing suffixation of -ly ---> gentlemanly (adj)
    step 3 class-preserving prifixation of un --> ungentlemanly

    is this correct.

    can someone help with denationalisation?

    I'd agree with your steps, though use different terms, but I am afraid I really don't get what you mean by denationalisation here, unless you're referring to whether the term is culture-bound.
