Sample text

R) Heather: you have the wee blues chairs and I have that. I have that wee chairs don’t I? (I) Siobhan: yes. ) and negation allows for greater topic continuity. The Response increasingly becomes a Response+Initation (R/I). These types of utterances not only respond to the previous utterance but also set the stage for a further response: Siobhan: and that’s all (I) and then we’ll go back home see.

For example, the word cat contains one morpheme /kæt/ which encodes the meaning “cat,” while the word cats/kæts/ contains two morphemes “cat”+plural. A morpheme is not the same as a syllable. A syllable is purely a sound unit, while a morpheme is a meaning unit. Thus, zebra/zebra/ has two syllables but only one morpheme since neither /zeb/ nor /rə/ has a meaning on its own, while cats consists of two morphemes but only one syllable. Morphemes such as cat that can stand alone as a word are called free morphemes, while those that cannot stand alone as words, such as the plural -s are called bound morphemes.

In addition, they operate in somewhat more restricted semantic fields (specific areas of meaning). For example, we can use deep and shallow when referring to bodies of water like pools, lakes and ponds but not when referring to water as a drink in a glass.
