Parts of speech included noun, pronoun adjective, numeral and verb; all of which formed their paradigmatic forms by inflections, suffixes, and sound interchange. There were no analytical, formations. Nouns in Old English retained only four of the Indo-European 8 cases, adjectives, partly pronouns and numerals agreed with the nouns they modified in number, gender and case. The Old English had two adjective declensions, a strong and a weak. The weak forms were used generally after demonstrative.

It analyzes the structure of words and parts of words, such as stems, root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Morphology also looks at parts of speech, intonation and stress, and the ways context can change a word's pronunciation and meaning.

All Old English nouns were divided as to being either strong or weak. As well as the noun, the Old English adjective can be declined in case, gender and number. Moreover, the instrumental case was preserved. While the first category had a branched declension (склонение), special endings for different numbers and cases, the weak declension was represented by nouns which had already begun to lose their declensional system. Examine an example of declension of a strong noun: Singular Plural. Adjectives must follow sequence with nouns which they define - that is why the same adjective can be masculine, neuter and feminine.

Using the data from the Russian National Corpus, the study shows that despite some claims to the contrary, NomC is still used in modern Russian, even though InsC prevails over time. The change in the distribution of the NomC and the InsC before and after 1950 is relatively small. My material shows that NomC and InsC tend to be distributed according to the form of the verb. NomC is used exclusively with a present tense copula, while in contexts with a non-present tense copula there is a tendency to replace NomC with InsC.

This study is an attempt to account in generative terms for several striking changes which took place in the inflectional system of English nouns between the years 1050 and 1300. In those 250 years, most of the earlier case distinctions disappeared, grammatical gender was lost, and the endings of the plural were greatly simplified. In this study, after an introductory chapter on the place of inflectional rules in a generative grammar and the concept of analogy as it is applied in linguistics, the rules which generate the endings of the noun paradigms are formulated (Chapter II), and their phonology is discussed in detail (Chapter III). In the last two chapters the transition from Old to Middle English is taken up and both the formal and function reasons for the changes mentioned above are explored.
