Class I/II affix
PHONOLOGY/MORPHOLOGY: classification of (English) affixes. Class I and Class II
affixes can be distinguished in terms of their different phonological and morphological
EXAMPLE: the English Class I affixes can cause stress shift
prodúctive-productívity), while their class II counterparts
are stress neutral (párent-párenthood,
prodúctive-prodúctiveness). Furthermore, class I affixes may appear inside
class II affixes, but not vice versa (*hopefulity). This generalization is
usually referred to as the
Affix Ordering Generalization.
The distinction between Class I and Class II affixes is equivalent to that between formative-boundary and word-boundary affixes (Chomsky & Halle, 1968), Level I and Level II affixes (Pesetsky 1979, Kiparsky 1982), and Stratum I and Stratum II affixes (Halle & Vergnaud 1987).
