Part-of-speech morphology

Part-of-speech morphology

The Part-of-speech morphology option will create affixes for an entire part-of-speech. The left side of the = symbol must be the abbreviated part-of-speech (used in the generated dictionary) and the right needs a dash symbol ‘-’ to create either a prefix or suffix, depending where it’s placed:

  nm = -o
  nf = -a
  v = to-

The above example adds “o” to the end of any masculine noun, “a” to the end of any feminine noun, and “to” to the beginning of any verb.

Use the bar symbol | to create a a random choice between affixes:

  v = -ar|-er|-ir
