1. Morphology: Label the underlined and boldfaced ax as either derivational or inflectional. autumnal
2. Morphology: Label the underlined and boldfaced ax as either derivational or inflectional. faster
3. Morphology: Label the underlined and boldfaced ax as either derivational or inflectional. fastener
4. Morphology: Label the underlined and boldfaced ax as either derivational or inflectional. composed (as in “Who composed the song?”)
5. Morphology: Label the underlined and boldfaced ax as either derivational or inflectional. decompose
6. Morphology: Morphological inflection may be indicated in sign language in what way?
7. Semantics: Match the relation that exists between either the words or the sentences in each pair below. PAIR RELATION test SYNONYMS
8. Displayed here, you see the character named Forky from the popular movie, Toy Story 4. Despite the name, this character is classified as a spork, which is a utensil that has features of both a spoon and a fork. Forky is named by Bonnie, the young child who creates Forky.
1. Identify the morphological process you believe could be responsible for Forky’s name.
2. Give evidence–a stated rationale–for your choice.
3. Explain how the process you selected would work to form Forky’s name. (Remember, morphological processes may include compounding, cliticization, backformation, coinage, and other possibilities discussed in your course materials.)
9. In the movie Toy Story 4, Bo Peep and Woody are trying to rescue Woody’s friend, Forky. They enter an antique store where Forky is being held and encounter a character named Tin Toy (Tinny for short). They try to get information about Forky’s whereabouts from Tinny. When Tinny asks Bo Peep if Woody is her friend, Bo Peep responds, “Yeah, he’s with me. My friend? No, no, no. He’s my accessory.” (Note that Bo Peep and Woody have been long- time friends going back to the rst Toy Story )
1. Discuss Bo Peep’s use of the word “accessory” using your knowledge of semantics. Cover the following questions in your response:
10. How can Bo Peep’s word be understood in more than one way?
11. Since Tinny knows Bo Peep but does not know Woody, what purpose might Bo Peep’s vague response serve? (Even if you are not familiar with the movie, you can logically deduce an answer from the information you have here.)

17. Morphology: Identify the word formation process illustrated for each set of words.
18. True or False? The illustration here provides the the correct morphological tree structure for the word
19. True or False? The illustration here provides the correct morphological tree structure diagram for the word

21. Syntax: Choose the reason that the bracketed phrase in the following sentence is NOT a constituent.
22. Syntax: Two words are marked with the +Tsp indication in the diagram below. What meaning does the +Tsp designation indicate?

27. Morphology: Examine the data from Turkish below. Then, match the words with their meaning.
28. Syntax: A sentence diagram has been provided. Select the answer that correctly describes the meaning of the sentence based on the diagram. Jamie bought the fabric from the designer in the shopping center.
