Fabb (1988) opts for a stratificational approach to English suffixation, in which two levels of suffixation are distinguished: suffixation of free forms and suffixation of bound roots.
Aronoff and Fuhrop (2002) aim to prove that suffixation is restricted by morphological complexity, and to do so they analyse English and German, two closely related languages.
In affixation, un- plus getreow produces ungetreow 'untrue', which, by suffixation of -nes, produces ungetreownes 'unbelief.
Including prefixation and suffixation into the more general process of affixation is justified on the grounds of the bound character of affixes, as opposed to free lexemes.
Recategorisation being a crucial feature in suffixation, the set of affixes can be divided according to the category of the output lexeme they create by their addition.
