**Morphology is the systematic study of morphemes, the smallest unit of grammar.
**Two types of morphological operations in English are inflection and derivation.
**English words can be grouped into two morphological classes: Base words and derived words: such as (a) one root + bound morphemes (e.g. friend + ly):; (b) two or more roots (e.g. bookshop) C) two or more roots + bound morphemes (bookshop +s)
**The two common word building processes are two viz. suffixes, prefixes
**Other means are modifying the base/stem/root, No change of form, Compounding, Conversion, Back formation, Clipping, Blending, Acronyms, and Reduplication.
