Morphology Free forms are elements that do not have to occur in a fixed position with respect to neighboring elements and that may stand on their own. Is the moon full? What did she say? Moon?

It is the smallest meaning/function-bearing unit. h u n t e r Morphology Words have internal structure, just as other linguistic entities (like syllables, phrases, sentences and so on).
