  Morphology (linguistics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Morphology is a subdiscipline of linguistics that studies word structure.
The part of morphology that covers the relationship between syntax and morphology is called morphosyntax, and it concerns itself with inflection and paradigms, but not with word-formation or compounding.
Lexical morphology is the branch of morphology that deals with the lexicon, which, morphologically conceived, is the collection of lexemes in a language.

Today 'morphology' is not primarily or only a biological metaphor, but relevant for several other natural and social sciences and even in music and the arts; morphology is also used in linguistics and evolutionary philosophy.
The idea of morphology should not frighten or deter impressionable minds in the 21st century from more deeply understanding their views of origin(s) and meaning(s) through change(s), and the place a theory of Evolution should have in them.
Uniform and non-uniform motion, constancy and indeterminacy; to 'grasp the morphology' (Fanon), i.e.

 Distributed Morphology
Distributed Morphology (DM) is a theory of the architecture of grammar first proposed in the early 1990s at MIT by Morris Halle, Alec Marantz and their students and colleagues including Eulalia Bonet, Rolf Noyer, Jim Harris, Heidi Harley, Andrea Calabrese, David Embick and others.
DM is piece-based in the sense that the elements of both syntax and of morphology are understood as discrete instead of as (the results of) morphophonological processes.
Separationism characterizes theories of morphology in which the mechanisms for producing the form of syntactico-semantically complex expressions are separated from, and not necessarily in a simple correspondence with, the mechanisms which produce the form ('spelling') of the correponding phonological expressions.

In Caruss System of Animal Morphology (1853) another theory was propounded, but the problem then seems to have fallen into abeyance until 1865, when it formed the subject of a prolonged and fruitful discussion in the Principles of Biology.
Here pure morphology is distinguished into two sub-sciencesthe first purely structural, tectology, which regards the organism as composed of organic individuals of different orders; the second essentially stereometric, promorphology.
To indicate all the steps by which the idea of morphological resemblance has been distinguished from that of physiological wotild be to examine the whole history of morphology; it must suffice to discuss the terminology of the subject which has, as ever, served not only as an index but as an engine of progress.

 Sperm Morphology
My husband went for a semen analysis and the result showed that the morphology was 90 percent abnormal.
Morphology refers to the shape and structure of the sperm.
(A closer evaluation called a strict morphology, or Kruger morphology, is more time-consuming and usually predicts normal sperm function when more than 15 percent are normal.) That means that a semen sample can include up to 40 percent abnormal sperm and still be considered fine.

 Computational Morphology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Computational morphology deals with the processing of words and word forms, in both their graphemic, i.e., written form, and their phonemic, i.e., spoken form.
While inflectional and derivational morphology are mediated by the attachment of a bound morph to a base form, compounding is the joining of two or more base forms to form a new word.
The lexicon in two-level morphology is used for two purposes: one is to describe which combinations of morphs are legal words of the language, the other one is to act as a filter whenever a surface word form shall be mapped to a lexical form.

 morphology --  Encyclopædia Britannica
Morphology deals with the structure and form of plants and includes such subdivisions as: cytology, the study of the cell; histology, the study of tissues; anatomy, the study of the organization of tissues into the organs of the plant; reproductive morphology, the study of life cycles; and experimental morphology, or morphogenesis, the study of development.
The morphology of verbal focus has attracted the most attention in Austronesian studies, but other areas of morphology are also of interest.
It is also concerned with the causes of change in the Earth's morphology; that is, in the shape of its landforms.

 American Zoologist: Comparative morphology of tube feet among the asteroidea: Phylogenetic implications
The external morphology of tube feet in species belonging to the order Velatida could not be distinguished from "typical" flat-- tipped, suckered tube feet; nonetheless, histological sections revealed a distinctive internal morphology.
These studies suggested that tube-foot morphologies might be more diverse than previously thought, which emphasizes the need for the examination of tube-foot morphology on a broad scale, with possible phylogenetic implications.
In the present study we examine the adult tube-foot morphology of 45 species of asteroids representing 19 families and 7 orders (Clark and Downey, 1992) to determine whether the flat-tipped, suckered versus pointed, non-suckered tube-foot model can be used to accurately generalize asteroid tube-foot morphology.

 Anatomy (from morphology) --  Encyclopædia Britannica
The best known aspect of morphology, usually called anatomy, is the study of gross structure, or form, of organs and organisms.
Although it is still useful to recognize many disciplines in animal biology—e.g., anatomy or morphology; biochemistry and molecular biology; cell biology; developmental studies (embryology); ecology; ethology; evolution; genetics; physiology; and systematics—the research frontiers occur as often at the interfaces of two or more of these areas as within any given one.

 Finite State Morphology
When morphemes are combined together into new words, they often display alternations in their pronunciation or spelling, as when swim+ing becomes swimming, take+ing becomes taking and die+ing becomes dying.
Finite-state morphology assumes that both the word-formation rules (morphotactics) and the morpho-phonological alternation rules can be modeled as finite-state machines.

The morphology code records the type of cell that has become neoplastic and its biologic activity; in other words, it records the kind of tumor that has developed and how it behaves.
In ICD-O morphology codes, a common root codes the cell type of a given tumor, while an additional digit codes the behavior.
Each specimen would be coded with the appropriate topography and morphology but in (b) the behavior would be /6 (metastatic), indicating that the associated topography code is not the site of origin.

Field morphology is the study of soil morphological features in the field by thorough observation, description and interpretation.
A keen eye that can discern specific features and their relationship to adjoining features coupled with well-calibrated fingers that can distinguish among relative differences in physical properties of soil material are essential and can only be acquired and maintained through practice.
In many soils, these differences are expressed by horizonation that lies approximately parallel to the land surface, which in turn reflects vertical partitioning in the type and intensity of the various processes that influence soil development.

 LMBM: An Overview
Lexeme-Morpheme Base Morphology (LMBM) is a variant of what Aronoff (1994) refers to as a 'lexeme-base' morphological theory.
Lexeme-base morphology assumes that only the lexeme is a true linguistic sign where 'lexeme' is defined exclusively and explicitly as any and all noun, verb, and adjective stems.
The assumption of sign base morphology (Saussure 1916), results from the fact that the default procedure for the MS (spelling) component is to realize features in the order in which it encounters them.

 Arabic Morphology Generation Using a Concatenative Strategy (ResearchIndex)
Abstract: Arabic inflectional morphology requires infixation, prefixation and suffixation, giving rise to a large space of morphological variation.
In this paper we describe an approach to reducing the complexity of Arabic morphology generation using discrimination trees and transformational rules.
By decoupling the problem of stem changes from that of prefixes and suffixes, we gain a significant reduction in the number of rules required, as much as a factor of three for certain verb types.

Distributed Morphology (DM) is a theory of grammatical architecture that was first proposed at MIT in the mid 1990s by linguistic professors Morris Halle, Alec Marantz, and their graduate students and colleagues.
Many conventional (lexicalist) theories claim that a significant amount of what is regarded as "syntax" is actually performed in the lexicon; the lexicon logically precedes the application of any strict syntactic rules and transformations.
However, Distributed Morphology claims that processes that affect morphology are not localized to the lexicon; instead, these morphological rules are distributed throughout the grammar.
