Inflection itself is the subject of the next chapter. o PARTS OF SPEECH AND PARADIGMS We cannot always properly say that a given word belongs to a set or class called a certain part of speech (or "form class"), but only (a) that its stem or its affix is associated with that part of speech, (b) that it enters into paradigms associated with that part of speech, (c) that it occupies positions in syntactic structures associated with that part of speech, or (d) that it has a syntactic extension or range associated with that part of speech.

Starting with {thirteen} we have seven compound words, words in which there is a coordination rather than a subordination of morphemic terms—the relation being, of course, that of arithmetic addition; and {twenty}, {thirty}, up to {hundred} are also compound, the relation changing to that which holds between the factors of an arithmetical product. In all of these we can see varying degress of phonemic simplification of the morphemic facts: /Ortin/ instead of the morphemically scrupulous {three&ten}, /twen-ti/ for {twice- ten} and so on throughout.
