EtymologyEdit

From Latin lexis, from Ancient Greek λέξις ‎(léxis, word) + -eme a suffix indicating a fundamental unit in some aspect of linguistic structure. Extracted from phoneme, from Ancient Greek φώνημα ‎(phṓnēma, sound), from φωνέω ‎(phōnéō, to sound), from φωνή ‎(phōnḗ, sound).

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

lexeme ‎(plural lexemes)

  1. (linguistics) A unit of lexical meaning, roughly corresponding to the set of inflected forms taken by a single word, so for example the lexeme RUN includes as members "run" (lemma), "running" (inflected form), and "ran", but excludes "runner" (a derived term).
  2. (computing) An individual instance of a continuous character sequence without spaces, used in lexical analysis (see token).
