Past Tense Morpheme

Morph In linguistics, a word segment that represents wiz altereme in sound or writing. For example, the word ill-famed is made up of cardinal morphs -in-, fam(e), -eous. A morpheme move be realized by only one morph. Thus, for example, the morpheme meaning hedge is represented by just one morphological form, the morph table, and the morpheme meaning gruelling is realized by only the morph difficult.The English past separate out morpheme that we magical spell -ed has various morphs. It is realized as t by and by the voiceless p of jump (jumped), as d afterwards the flaccid l of repel (repelled), and as 2162 after the voiceless t of root or the voiced d of wed (rooted and wedded). We can also confab these morphs allomorphs or variants. II. AllomorphsAllomorphs are variant forms of the equivalent morpheme or variant phonological realizations of the identical morpheme such as the past tense morpheme ed has various allomorphs as t/d/Id and negative morpheme has many allomor phs explicit by the prefixes, unfriendly, illegal, irregular, intolerant, and impossible. The indefinite article is a good example of a morpheme with more than than one allomorph. It is realised by the ii forms a and an. -Allomorphs are unalike forms of the very(prenominal) morpheme, or basic unit of meaning.These can be incompatible pronunciations or different spellings. Example There are three allomorphs of the morpheme -s in English. Compare the sound of the -s in cats, dogs and foxes. Exercise 4 (allomorphs) The past-tense morpheme (ed) can be pronounced in three different ways. Based on the pronunciation of the past-tense morpheme, distinguish the following words into three groups. (Crashed, hinted, popped, accustomed, reached, classified, kissed, banged, lulled, lined, divided, fitted, flowed. )
