    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.
