    If anyone can help me with this god bless him

    hello folks
    i need help with this question
    identify all the morphemes you can detect, and give their meanings.
    example: -toto "child"
    m-noun prefix attached to singular nouns of class 1
    a-prefix attached to verbs when the subjects is a singular noun of class 1
    be sure to look for other noun and verb markers,including tense markers.
    THANKS FOR YOUR TIME

    Anna,

    A morpheme is a minimal meaningful unit. To use your examples,

    m- <a number prefix>
    A noun can be either singular or plural (e.g., English has book, books.That is,-s is added to form plural nouns).
    In the language you're working with, m- is added to Class 1 nouns to make them singular.
    a- <an agreement marker>
    The subject must agree in number with its verbs (e.g., English has The book is big; The books are big. The verb agrees in number with its subject.
    In the language you're working with, if the subject is a Class 1 singular noun, then add a- to its verb.
