Compound Affix Ordering Generalization
MORPHOLOGY: a generalization which entails that Class I affixes cannot appear outside compounds, while some Class II affixes may
appear both inside and outside compounds. In other words, only Class II affixes may attach to compounds.
EXAMPLE: the English Class I negative prefix in- may not attach to compound adjectives (*in-self-sufficient), while its Class II counterpart un- may (un-self-sufficient).
