Affixation and derivatives - Another way of forming New words is by affixation, for example quantifiable is formed from quant(ity) + ify + able
- these new words are known as derivatives
- affix = a part of a word that is not a stem or root. Affixes constitute almost a closed class: new elements cannot be (easily) added.
- Affixes can be classified according to their placement on the stem.
root_1 = the part of a word remaining when all affixes have been removed.
Roots_1 constitute an open class
-{self} - in unselfish, -{sył} - in porozsyłać
Base |root_2| stem = a part of a word to which an affix can be )has been) added
{unselfish} - in unselfishness

-These new nouns are known as nominalizations, and have received some attention form linguists because they are known to play an important role in academic writing.
-Many people find it helpful to show the affixation in an inverted tree diagram, as below.
It has damaged our reput-ation im-measur-ab-ly
-The inverted tree diagram shows that reputation (noun is derived
- The word immeasurably (adverb) is derived from immeasurable (adj) + -ly ; immeasurable itself is derived from in- (negative) + measurable; measurable itself is derived from measure (verb) + -able
