  What is a morpheme?
A morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit in the grammar of a language.
Current approaches to morphology conceive of morphemes as rules involving the linguistic context, rather than as isolated pieces of linguistic matter.
Note that a morpheme like "-s" can just be a single phoneme and does not have to be a whole syllable.

Morphemes can be roots or affixes, depending on whether they are the main part or dependent part of a word (cf.
In this example, the first two morphemes were borrowed into English from different languages, a sufficient reason for thinking of them as different elements and hence distinct morphemes.
This kind of situation, in which our definition of morpheme as an element pairing a particular form with a particular meaning might lead us to call these one morpheme, but our historical knowledge leads us to call them two, is comparatively rare.

One is a single morpheme that combines a part before the root and a part after the root.
