Question and answer
Explain how a word can be a morphemic noun and a syntactic adverb in the same sentence.
A morphemic noun (person, place, thing, or idea) is a noun that can have suffix added to make it into an adverb (word used to describe a verb). In the case of the word "Man," you can use "Man" as a noun (ie The man sat down). [ If you add "-ly" to the end, you get "manly", an adverb (ie The boy had sang manly). So together in a sentence you could have "The man had a manly walk." "Man", as the
noun, and "manly" being the adverb that describes the verb, "walk". ]
