  • 2. Introduction  Derivational morphology is a branch of morphology dealing with wordformation. (Trask.1993)  The process of obtaining new words by adding affixes to existing words or stem occurs. Affixes are bound morphemes which can only attach to word or stem. The process changes the new semantically and grammatically.

  • 5. Noun Markers (cont....) In English word-formation, a noun derives from a noun, a verb and an adjective but not an adverb. If a noun form is from an identical word class, the meaning may change but its grammatical category remains the same. (Noun is derived from Noun) Company = companion; Independence = independency; Philosophy = philosopher; Friend = friendship.
