    Morphological analisys (graphical representation)

    Could you have a look at this picture: https://ru-static.z-dn.net/files/d24...dd816b07b8.jpg

    This is how a morphological analysis is represented graphically in Russian.
    We can see a prefix, a root, two suffixes, and empty flexion.

    Does something similar exist for the English language?

    We certainly attach prefixes and suffixes to root words. That is common in English, although not a perfectly regular process. I'm pretty sure we don't have "empty flexion", whatever that may be in Russian. Google searching suggests the phrase is used only in physiotherapy and orthopedic surgery.

    Few members can read Russian.

    Perhaps you could produce something similar for an English word. We can then comment on it.
