    do you even know what a MORPHEME is?

    it is the smallest part of spech that contains a meaning.

    it could be as small as a single letter prefix or suffix that changes the meaning of the whole word

    for example take # 7 progressive

    if you assume progress is the root word then ive is the suffix and it has its own meaning and effect on the word as a whole

    "-ive" turns the noun progress into an adjective

    progress is one morpheme because it has its own meaning and cant be broken down into any smaller form without losing that meaning

    ive is another mopheme

    a morpheme can be as small as one letter such as

    "S" at the end of a noun to make it plural dog-S

    or an

    "A" in the beginning of an adjective to make it opposite A-typical, or

    A-symmetrical

    A morpheme is the smallest unit of meaning in a language. The words 'the', 'in', and 'girl' consist of one morpheme.The word 'girls' consists of two morphemes, i.e. 'girl' and 's'.

    With this, you can make out the morphemes in the given words, yourself.
