Narayan 1 Gregory Narayan Linguistics 109 Wayne Harbert Homework Assignment #2 3/19/07 1) Morphological tree for the word “unenjoyable” The primary component of this word is the verb ‘to enjoy’. The word is first formed by adding the suffix ‘able’ to the verb enjoy, creating the past tense of the original verb and a word meaning the ability of a thing to be enjoyed. The prefix ‘un’ is then added, creating an adjective meaning the disability or incapacity of a thing to be enjoyed. It is crucial that the suffix is added to the original word before the prefix, as the prefix ‘un’ alone with ‘enjoy’ is meaningless. 2) A. This example involves the verb-forming suffix –en that attaches to adjectives such as dark, black, soft, etc, and forms verbs that mean the taking on a characteristic or quality described by the original adjective. The examples included were redden , blacken , harden , and sweeten . Others among the many that exist are darken , soften , fatten , quicken , and stiffen , and moisten .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
