Morphology: 2 - Derivational Morphology
DP (Design Principles ) 3, 6, 7.
As we observed when considering the possibility of inflexional morphology: "[o]ne effect of self-segregation of morphemes is that a whole string of morphemes can be unambiguously written without the need for 'white space' as a separator ... It means there is in effect no formal written distinction between a particle, an adposition or an affix."
We finished that same page with the words: "There is only one class of words with lexical meaning with the written shape CVC."
