Word Formation Rule
MORPHOLOGY: a rule of grammar by which morphologically complex words are
formed out of (free and/or bound) morphemes. Word formation rules are necessary in theories which assume that the
lexicon only contains a set of underived words,
and that complex words are derived from these listed forms.
