Do you code for comparative and superlative forms? For example, this dog is big/er.
There is a SALT blog titled "Why do we mark some bound morphemes and not others" which you should read. We do not mark comparative and superlative forms, as well as other noun and adjective endings, e.g., slow/ly, happy/ness, govern/ment, neighbor/hood, friend/ship, work/able. Although you may choose to mark these endings, be careful when comparing your sample to samples selected from any of the SALT reference databases as measures, such as MLU in morphemes, will be affected.
