Compound words, derived words, comparatives, and superlatives

Why aren't compound words counted as more than one morpheme? The same question applies for derived words. There is ample evidence that young children productively use some derivations (e.g., agentive -er or adjectival -y), as well as produce novel compounds. Why aren't inflections such as comparatives and superlatives counted? Posted by SALT Support Staff Sep 16, 2014
