    It could also belong to grammar.


    library; bookstore
    This relate to lexis system <=== my answer Yes


    foot; foots
    This relate to phonology system <=== my answer No, this is morphology
    The addition of a morpheme "s" to foot. If it were foot/feet it would phonology as well as morphology.

    I'd rather not; No way!
    This relate to lexis system <=== my answer No, I'd say function
    Lexis generally relates to single words like the library/bookstore example

    hit; heat
    This relate to phonology system <=== my answer Yes
    They are the same phonemes /hit/ but in heat, the /i/ is longer /hi:t/

    photograph; photographer
    This relate to grammar system <=== my answer No, this is morphology. The addition of the morpheme "er" to photograph to change the word. For grammar, you'd need at least a two-word phrase to compare.


    should; must
    This relate to function system <=== my answer No, this is lexis.
    The issue here is the difference or similarity between these two words
