PSEUDOMORPHEME: They are segmentable part of a complex word, but do not have an independent meaning but nonetheless serves to distinguish one word from the other. For example: conceive, receive
ALLOMORPH: An allomorph is a variant form of a morpheme, that is, when a unit of meaning varies in sound without changing the meaning. The term allomorph explains the comprehension of phonological variants for specific morphemes. For example for the regular past /-ed/ we have three different allomorphs /t/, /d/, /id/.
FREE VS BOUND MORPHEMES: Free morphemes can occur independently. For example `boy´ or `sing´. However bound morphemes must be attached to another morpheme and they cannot be uses independently. For example the -s of plural form in `boys´. For example in the word `repainted´ the morph paint can stand alone as a word and it is therefore a free morpheme. On the other hand `re-´ and `–ed´ cannot stand alone and therefore they are bound morphemes.
DERIVATION: It involves the creation of content word that can be freely added to the lexicon (e.G: nouns, adjectives, verbs, -ly adverbs) in other words is the process of adding a bound morphs to create new words of the same or different word classes. For example in preapproval we have before the base a case of prefixation `pre-´ and after the base suffixation `–al´
