Define: bound morphemes

what is the smallest unit of sound that combines with other sounds to make words?


Do most phonemes have meaning when they stand alone?


3 manifestations of problems related to phonemes:

1. developmental delays in acquiring consonants
2. reception problems like misinterpreting words because a different consonant was substituted
3. difficulty learning the sound-symbol code

What is the "sound-symbol" code?


Give 1 example of a free morpheme?


What are 2 types of words that are bound morphemes?
