Abstract

The paper entitled “Inflectional Morphemes in English Compared with Bahasa Indonesia and Basa Sunda” is intended to discuss the use of inflectional morphemes to form words in English compared with Bahasa Indonesia, and Basa Sunda. The aims of the study is to describe the forms/positions and the functions of English inflectional morphemes and to find out the similarities and the differences among the three languages. Inflectional morphemes are kinds of morphemes which do not change lexical meaning or part of speech. In English, the inflectional morphemes are suffixes, which are attached at the end of words. In the other two languages, inflectional morphemes can be attached in more various positions. It can be concluded that inflectional morphemes are used in English, Bahasa Indonesia and Basa Sunda. English only has one inflectional morpheme while the others are more varied. There are similarities and differences in using inflectional morphemes in English, Bahasa Indonesia and Basa Sunda. All the languages use inflectional morphemes to show plurality, to indicate comparative or superlative and active/passive verbs. Basa Sunda has more various combination of affixes than others.
