MORPHOLOGY: a term which refers to the situation where the semantically
more complex category is represented by a phonologically simpler form.
EXAMPLE: the genitive plural of feminine and neuter nouns in -a/-o
in Russian (kniga 'book', mesto 'place') are formed without any
(overt) affixation (knig, mest).
