Lexeme

Lexeme

A lexeme is the minimal unit of language which

  • has a semantic interpretation and
  • embodies a distinct cultural concept.

It is made up of one or more form-meaning composites called lexical units.

A lexical database is organized around lexemes, which include all the morphemes of a language, even if these morphemes never occur alone. A lexeme is conventionally listed in a dictionary as a separate entry.
