In this work, zero derivation is derivation without derivational morphemes.
The "morphologically unmarked" forms of present, in which "person agreement markers are fused with non-verbal predicates without further derivational measures being taken" (Turunen 2010 : 122), have received less attention than the forms of PST2, as it appears, for the scarcity of historical evidence on morphosyntactic changes, in general.
There are totally 174 morphemes, 96 derivational and 78 inflectional, in the list of morphemes.
In the literature, the suffix has taken certain nomenclatures such as "Extensional suffixes" (c.f Emenanjo 1978), (Onukawa 1999), "Meaning modifiers" (Nwachukwu 1983, Winston 1973, Lord 1975) and "Class-maintaining type of derivational affixes" (c.f Kari 1995) among others.
Recent studies on the topic of Middle English derivational suffixes include those by Ciszek (2008), who analyses seven Early Middle English suffixes (amongst which -DOM, -HED, -SHIP and -NESS are included), taking into account semantics, productivity and dialect distribution, and Trips (2009), who traces the development of -hood, -DOM and -SHIP through the history of English and also deals with the rivalry between suffixes.
Some ATTs that show a high level of inflectionability, though still not derivational, have been approved as Arabic words by the Academy of the Arabic Language in Cairo: such as battery ([phrase omitted]) (al-Mu 'jam al-Wasit, 2004, p.

In a study by Cunningham (1998), it was shown that affixed forms (derivational and inflectional) outnumbered stems four to one.
Although the philological study of the morphology of Old English in general and its word-formation phenomena in particular have a long tradition (see Lindemann 1970 and the references provided by this author), the derivational morphology of this stage of the English language has been dealt with from a more theoretically based perspective only in relatively recent works.
