lexeme ({{{1}}})
  1. (linguistics) Roughly, the set of inflected forms taken by a single word, such as the lexeme RUN including as members "run" (lemma), "running" (inflected form), or "ran", and excluding "runner" (derived term).

Usage notes

  • Ran, run, runs, and running are variations of the English lexeme run; whereas runner and runners aren’t: they are forms of the lexeme runner.
  • Both hypodermic and dermatologist contain the morpheme derm, which is a root form referring to “skin”. This is not a lexeme, though.
