The term ‘morphology’ has been taken over from biology where it is used to denote the study of the form of plants and animals. It was first used for linguistics purposes in 1859 by the German linguist, August Schleicher, to refer to the study of the form of words. In present-day linguistics, the term morphology refers to the study of the internal structure of words, and the systematic form-meaning correspondences between words.
