Synopsis: It is commonly accepted that English letters only represent sounds. Is this indeed the case? If not, how can the concepts represented by English letters be revealed? Analysis on the Ideographic Characteristics of Some English Morphemes provides the answers to these questions through an investigation of around 900 morphemes. The book s point of departure for this investigation is that, because English words are composed of letters, their definitions may be linked to the concepts implied by these letters. In order to provide that English words do indeed have ideographic characteristics, the book analyses the ancient concept of the four elements (air, earth, water, and fire), and these elements relationship with the component letter sequence of a morpheme. Given its ground-breaking research and findings, this volume is essential reading for both researchers and students in linguistics and other related fields, as well as for the general reader with an interest in word-formation and symbolism.
