Chapter 6: Word Forms

In this chapter, we look more closely at words and at the meaningful pieces that combine to create words — morphemes. When you’ve finished this chapter, you’ll be able to:

  • identify whether a word is monomorphemic or polymorphemic,
  • identify the morphemes that make up a polymorphemic word,
  • distinguish between inflectional morphemes and derivational morphemes.
