Morpheme - the smallest unit of meaning in a language; it may be a word or word part and may be a single syllable or more than one syllable. For example, the word umbrella has three syllables but only one morpheme. If we add an ‘s’ to the end of umbrella (umbrella + ‘s’ = umbrellas), the word now has two morphemes.
