    Re: words and meanings

    1. Phonology: shelk follows English phonological patterns; e.g., /sh/, /lk/.

    2- Morphological patterns:

    a- singular noun (modified by an adjective).
    b- plural noun (modified by 'more')
    c- present participle; 'was -ing')
    d- noun (takes -ness suffix).
    e- adjective (modifies a noun).
    f- noun (ends in -er).
    g- adjective (ends in -ly).
