H a l a m a n

merely mean to fix something. Additionally,

I can say that in this analysis, there are

words which the meaning is derived „far‟

from the properties of the base word.

Discussion

a. Repair

This word consists of two mor-

phemes re + pair and can be categorized

as verb and noun. These morphemes gen-

erate new meaning that is closely related

to the new meaning „to fix‟. The category

examples:

They repair the roof together.

V

I took my bike in for repair.

N

b. Reaction

This word consists of three mor-

phemes, re + act + ion. These morphemes

generate new meaning that is closely re-

lated to the new meaning „to act towards

another action‟. Since the suffix is ion,

noun forming suffix, the category of this

word is noun.

I tried shaking him but there was no

reaction.

N

c. Repeat

This word consists of two mor-

phemes re + peat. Peat means turf; a soft

black or brown substance formed from

decaying plants. Seeing the properties,

these morphemes generate new meaning

that is far related to the new meaning „to

say again‟. The categories of this word are

verb, noun, and adjective. Examples:

The programs will be repeated next

year.

V

A repeat of the 1906 earthquake

N

could kill up to 11.000 people.

She is my repeat customer.

Adj

d. Review

This word consists of two morphemes

re + view. View may mean extent or range

of vision, the act of seeing or examining,

and a mode or manner of looking at or

regarding something. These morphemes

generate new meaning „to see again‟. De-

pending upon the context, this word may

serve as noun and verb. Example:

His parole application is up for review

next week.

N

The play was reviewed in the national

newspapers V

e. Refuse

This word consists of two mor-

phemes re + fuse. Fuse may mean to re-

duce, to blend, to stich, or an electrical

safety device consisting of or including a

wire or strip of fusible metal that melts

and interrupts the circuit when the current

exceeds a particular amperage. However

the morphemes generate new meaning

that is far related to the new meaning „to

deny‟. This word has three categories:

noun, verb, and adjective. Example:

He flatly refused to discuss the mat-

ter.

V

Every cities must have household re-

fuse.

N

She works as a refuse collector.

Adj

f. Reverse

This word consists of two mor-

phemes re + verse. Verse may mean a line

of metrical writing or to turn into verse.

However the morphemes generate new

meaning that is far related to the new

meaning „to change to opposite‟. This word

has three categories: noun, verb, and ad-

jective. Example:

You should reverse the order of the

pages.

V

Put the car into reverse.

N
