This paradigmatic asymmetry brings the inflexional
character of the prefix attached to the verbs in the preterite indicative into question.
This research into Spanish inflexional
morphology confirms the basic pattern of data obtained in other languages.
4) The Porter stemming algorithm (or Porter stemmer) is a process for removing the common morphological and inflexional
endings from words in English.
We can differentiate between the periphrastic and the inflexional
construction as in (12):
And so it goes; the many inflexional
forms for nouns, pronouns, verbs, and adjectives add up to something like a counter-pointing of heavy/light: the cumulative weight of all the grammar, played against the subtlety of its nuancing.
Icelandic has preserved the inflexional
system characteristic of Old Scandinavian, with four cases (nominative, genitive, accusative, and dative), three genders (masculine, feminine, neuter), and marking of definiteness throughout the nominal subsystem, and three moods (indicative, imperative, and subjunctive), number (singular, plural), person (1, 2, 3), and categories of the verb.
It must be noted here that only inflexional
endings attached to verbs forming their preterite and past participle forms by means of vowel gradation are taken into consideration.
The preferred vowel in unstressed inflexional
syllables is e; however, i/y is frequent in gen.
and prepositional marking in complementation.
