AbstractThe purpose of the present paper is to try to find an answer to the question: how are complex signs analyzed in English morphology in the context of Axiomatic Functionalist Theory?

With an eye to the notions sign and complex sign as envisaged in Axiomatic Functionalist Linguistics three of these items namely, penniless, countess and Marxism turn out to be unanalyzable, i.e. pseudo-composites
