We offer information on the definition and structure of words, the idetification of individual components and their basic characteristics, the rules and principles of word formation, the characteristics of the morphological operations of declension, derivation and composition, and the relationship of Morphology with other areas of linguistics such as Syntax, Phonology, etc.
