Accidence

Postby Grogie » Fri Nov 25, 2005 6:37 am

I discovered this word a few days ago while looking up something else(a very common occurrance!). In morphology, it refers to the study of inflection.

How would you use this in a sentence? I tried to find an example but came up empty.

Accidence is one of the many facets of morphology.

Accidence is also inflection itself

The accidence of Latin amare "to love", is its endings:

am-o I love
am-as you love
am-at he/she loves
am-amus we love
am-atis yall love
am-ant they love

The accidence of Englis "love" is:
love
love-s

Dr. Goodword and BD, many thanks for the examples of accidence. I didn,t have a truly clear definition of the word in my mind.
