3 Introduction to Grammar 1/11Introduction to GrammarGrammarIn global senseIn narrow sense
4 Introduction to Grammar 2/11Introduction to GrammarGrammarIn global senseequals competence, a body of knowledge that anative speaker has about his/her language whichenables him/her to speak and understand it.includes word and sentence structure rules,pronunciation rules, meaning of words/ sentences,and discourse organization rules.In narrow sense
5 Introduction to Grammar 3/11Introduction to Grammarrefers only to the formation of the word and sentencestructures.consists of morphology, the study of words and wordformation, and syntax, the study of phrases, clauses,and sentences.GrammarIn global senseIn narrow sense

8 2 Lexical item – meaning LEXICAL ITEM = A basic unit of meaning … 3/22Lexical item – meaningLEXICAL ITEM= A basic unit of meaning …A single word(E.g.: man, boy)Less than a word(E.g.: terr in terror)More than one word(E.g.: to rain dogs and cats)
9 Lexical item and meaning has arbitrary relationship. 4/22Lexical item – meaningLEXICAL ITEM&MEANINGLexical item and meaning has arbitrary relationship.
10 2 Morpheme - Word MORPHEME = A minimal meaningful unit E.g.: re/try 5/22Morpheme - WordMORPHEME= A minimal meaningful unitE.g.: re/tryboy/s
11 2 Morpheme - Word WORD = An independent meaningful unit. E.g.: try boy 6/22Morpheme - WordWORD= An independent meaningful unit.E.g.: tryboyturnreturn
13 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 8/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesInflectional morphemesDerivational morphemesmodify the meaning of an item but not change its parts of speech.can change meaning of the stem and typically, they change the part of speech.
14 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 9/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesInflectional morphemesDerivational morphemesare changes in words to express their semantic and syntactic relationships to other words in the sentence.E.g.: ‘s’ in ‘Bush says’ indicates the present tense and the subject is third person and singular.indicate semantic relationships within words.E.g.: the morpheme ‘ful’ in ‘beautiful’ has no connection with other morphemes beyond the word.
15 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 10/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesInflectional morphemesDerivational morphemesare regularly distributed. They occur with all or most members of a word class.E.g.: ‘s’ (3rd person singular present) occurs with most verbs.do not occur across whole classes.E.g.: not all verbs take the derivational suffix ‘al’ as refuse, propose.
16 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 11/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesInflectional morphemesDerivational morphemestypically occur away from the root.E.g.: the plural morpheme ‘s’ occurs at the end of a word, after all other morphemes.occur close to the root, before inflectional morphemes.
17 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 12/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesInflectional morphemesDerivational morphemes-s: 3rd person singular present-ed: past tense-ing: present participle-en: past participle-s: Plural-s: possessive-er:comparative-est: superlativeThere are a large number of derivational morphemes, which can be prefixes or suffixes.
18 Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemes 13/22Inflectional vs. Derivational morphemesWork in groups of 3Each group make a list of 5 inflectional and 5 derivational morphemesThe fastest group win the game
19 3 Morphological processes of word formation 1/33Morphological processes of word formationPrefixation:adding a prefix to the baseE.g.: Non-stopPredict
20 3 Morphological processes of word formation 2/33Morphological processes of word formationSuffixation:adding a suffix to the baseE.g.: EconomistGrammatical
21 3 Morphological processes of word formation 3/33Morphological processes of word formationConversion:a change of word-classes without affix.E.g.: Import (n), (v)Abstract (n), (adj)
22 3 Morphological processes of word formation 4/33Morphological processes of word formationCompounding:word formation from two or more bases.E.g. Greenhouse effectDesktop computer
23 3 Morphological processes of word formation shortening a word 5/33Morphological processes of word formationClipping:shortening a wordE.g.: Phone from telephonePhoto from photographFlu from influenza
24 3 Morphological processes of word formation 6/33Morphological processes of word formationReduplication:word formation from two or more either identical or slightly different elements.E.g.: Goody-goodyTick-tockSeesawWishy-washyTip-top
25 3 Morphological processes of word formation 7/3Morphological processes of word formation3Blending:word formation from two separate forms.E.g.: Motel from motor and hotelSmog from smoke and fog.
26 3 Morphological processes of word formation 8/33Morphological processes of word formationAcronym:word formation from initial letters of a series of words.E.g.: TV from televisionFAQ from frequently asked question.
