Derivational process tends to take a word from a certain lexical category (part of speech) and change it to another category. For example the suffix – ly that is English derivational process, changes a word from an adjective to an adverb (quick becomes quickly). However derivational affixes do not always change the lexical category of a word. They sometimes change the whole meaning of the base and leave the category the same as it was. A prefix hardly changes the lexical category in English (write – rewrite).
Languages are essential forms of communication that are used on a day-to-day basis. Whether its at home, school, work, or at a restaurant, we use language to interact with one another. Languages change over time as different phrases or words change meanings. There are controversial languages that to some are outdated or no longer recognized as a common source of communication. One of those controversial languages is Latin, a language that has been around for a numerous amount of years.
Language is considered as a proper and a systematic way of communication between two individuals. It is a tool that enables that transmission of various subject matters. Different languages are spoken around globe. However, English is one of the influential languages that are spoken in the world. It is an international language that is spoken in many countries.
We can see this in South Asia and Africa where English is used as a means of communication as well as an official language that everyone can understand, for example in India, English is given the status of official language along with Hindi. It is also spoken as official language in Kenya because of the different tribes who all have different languages so to keep harmony English is the language of court, parliament, used in universities and nearly all exams that are conducted for higher
Words that contain inflectional affixes have forms and meanings that are fully predictable from the knowledge about the base and affix. In contrary to the derivational morphemes, inflectional morphemes do not change the meanings or the syntax of the base. They have primarily grammatical functions (Marslen-Wilson, Tyler, Waksler, & Older, 1994). Inflectional morphology found in English are past tense marker –ed, simple present tense third person singular marker –s, plural noun marker –s, and comparative or superlative markers –er and –est. Inflectional morphemes exist only as suffixes, there are no inflectional prefixes.
Many languages around the world, different languages utilize by human in order to communicates between each other, communities, regions, and countries. However, the languages are not alike. Arabic Language one of the major languages in the world. For Arabic, not only the large number of it is speakers, but more importantly for being the Language of Islam. In any language, whether it is Arabic or English or French any sentence considers as a largest unite in the language (Humboldt, 1988).
Language differentiates human being from the other animals. Cambridge dictionary defines language as: “is a system of communication consisting of sounds, words, and grammar, or the system of communication used by people in a particular country or type of work” (Cambridge online dictionary). Oxford dictionary
