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).
