A Componential Morphemic Analysis of English Personal Pronouns
Preview not available

Abstract

An analysis of the English personal pronouns is proposed in which they are morphemically segmented into three components-a prefix indicating person, a bound base that is the 'pronominal base', and a final component that is either a case suffix or a postfix of gender. The material is presented in the form of phonemes, morphophones, and morphemes; certain theoretical considerations of morphophonic structure are suggested but not elaborated.
