morpheme that belongs to one or more closed classes, in a given synchronic state. (E.g.: run - in running )
The smallest contrastive unit in a semantic system, e.g., run, switch on, kick the bucket. A single concept/idea which may be expressed by a single word or a group of words.
A single unit of lexis. Sometimes called a Å‡wordÃ“, but more specific. For example, how many words is Å‡washing machineÃ“? ItÅs two if you use the word count on your computer, but it only carries one meaning. If you separate the lexeme, it loses its meaning.
a minimal unit of the vocabulary of a language that can have independent meaning without being added to another word or word part and that cannot be understood from the meanings of component morphemes; a word.
a minimal unit (as a word or stem) in the lexicon of a language; `go' and `went' and `gone' and `going' are all members of the English lexeme `go'
a basic unit of vocabulary, such as a single-character word, affix, or compound word
an abstract unit of morphological analysis in linguistics , that roughly corresponds to a set of words that are "the same" in basic meaning
a symbol unique to one semantic interpretation of a word
a unit of linguistic analysis
The fundamental lemma, or form, of any semantic unit (refers to the â€œdictionary formâ€ of a word)
the basic lexical morpheme representing the various lexical allomorphs of the morpheme and containing the lexical meaning of the morpheme. By convention, lexemes are written in CAPS, representing the abstractness of the form: HOUSE, RAT, MAN, SEE, RED, RADI (base for radi+us, radi+i, radi+al), RADI+AL ( lexeme with a base and a derivational suffix), RE+MAKE, OVER+COOK, RE+VIS+ION.
roughly: the set of inflections of a word (cf lemma). See also: (1) Wikipedia on lexeme Wiktionary:Languages with more than one grammatical gender Conjugation and (4) Declension.[ edit] â€“ of masculine gender
A lexeme is an abstract unit of morphological analysis in linguistics, that roughly corresponds to a set of words that are different forms of the same word. For example, English run, runs, ran and running are forms of the same lexeme. A related concept is the lemma (or citation form), which is a particular form of a lexeme that is chosen by convention to represent a canonical form of a lexeme.
