In this chapter the analysis of words is performed into the smallest functional units 7). These units show a division into two groups: 1. roots which may occur as words. Elements which do not occur as words, but in the same morphological positions as roots, are called bound roots 8). 2. affixes which do not occur as words but are always combined with roots. They always have positions in the word entirely different from those occupied by roots.
