    Could you help me to answer this question which is very problematic for me.Thanks in advance:)

    21.ONE LEXICAL ITEM WILL OFTEN CORRESPOND TO A WORD (CAT) OR A PHRASE (A HARD NUT) WHILE ONE PHRASE NEED NOT CORRESPOND TO A LEXICAL ITEM. EXPLAIN USING EXAMPLES AND NOTIONS SUCH AS 'CONSTITUENTS', 'PRODUCTIVITY', 'OPAQUENESS'.

    Default Re: Need Your Help - Lexical Items

    Free morphemes fall into two catagories. The morphemes in the first category are called lexical morphemes and consist of the words carrying the content of the message. Examples: 'boy', 'man', 'house', 'tiger', 'yellow', 'look', 'break'. The morphemes in the second catagory are called functional morphemes and consist of the functional words in the langauge such as conjunctions, prepositions, articles and pronouns. Examples: 'and', 'but', 'on', 'near', above', 'in', 'the', 'that'.


    according to above it not possible that you find A pharase (functional morphme) that be lexical.lexical and functional are belonge to diffenet category.

    Look novi_83

    just like mehdi4u said
    free morphemes consists of tow sections
    Lexical and Functional morphemes
    Lexical are ( verbs, noun,adj,adv)
    ex; (eat,mona,good,well)
    Functional are(pro, art,conj,prep)
    ex; (she,the,and,to)


    free morphemes we can use them alone
    but bound morphemes we can't use them alone like "un-"
    we use in unhappy , etc....
