I am curious how tightly packed morphemes can be in English words. Do any of you happen to know which English word has the most morphemes per syllable, or know how to find out?
These are the best I've found so far:
fourths (3 morphemes, one syllable)
firsts, fifths, sixths, eighths, ninths (same)
And a similar question: which word has the fewest morphemes per syllable?
I haven't thought about this one as much, but this was the best I could think of off the top of my head:
anthropomorphism (3 morphemes, 6 syllables)
