Summary and Keywords
Some of the basic terminology for the major entities in morphological study is introduced, focusing on the word and elements within the word. This is done in a way which is deliberately introductory in nature and omits a great deal of detail about the elements that are introduced.
Keywords: word, lexeme, word-form, morpheme, morph, allomorph, formative, affixoid, phonaestheme, morphosyntactic word, phonological word, lexical word, grammatical word, compound, listedness, multi-word expression
