    Question linguistics

    is "cran" in cranberry " a bound morheme or free morpheme?

  2. #2

    Re: linguistics

    "Cran" is a bound morpheme. Amazingly, this very morpheme has been used to name a class of bound morphemes that are used as neither a prefix nor a suffix: "cranberry morphemes." Such bound morphemes are labelled as "unproductive".

    If you want the reference on this I would be glad to send it to you.
