Inflectional vs. derivational MOST affixes in English are derivational. If in doubt, how can you tell? Only derivational morphemes can change the word class (e.g., from N to V) Inflectional affixes are always suffixes There’s never more than one of them And they come at the very end of the word

List of inflectional morphemes English has only 8 inflectional morphemes. If it’s an affix and not on this list, it must be derivational.

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
