Etymology | What are morphemes?
Updated over a week ago


Morphemes are meaningful units in a language that cannot be further broken down into smaller units. They are the building blocks of words and can be combined with other morphemes to create more complex words. The combination of phonemes, which are the elementary sounds in a language, form morphemes, but their ability to create meaning depends on the systematic structure of the language rather than the absolute value of the sounds.
