Simulfix

In linguistics, a simulfix is a type of affix that changes one or more existing phonemes (usually vowels) in order to modify the meaning of a morpheme. Examples of simulfixes in English are generally considered irregularities, all of which left over from pluralization rules that existed before the Great Vowel Shift. They include: man → men, woman → women louse → lice, mouse → mice foot → feet, tooth → teeth The transfixes of the Semitic languages may be considered a form of discontinuous simulfix. In Indonesian language, simulfix productively occurs in ngopi, nyapu, nyuci, nongkrong, macul as verbs from the base kopi, sapu, cuci, tongkrong, pacul as nouns.
