Agglutinative Languages

Agglutinative Languages

 

languages whose characteristic morphological feature is word formation and word change through agglutination.

Among the agglutinative languages are the Turkic languages; the Finno-Ugric languages; the Tungus-Manchurian, Korean, and Japanese languages; some of the American Indian languages; and a number of African languages. Agglutinative languages are contrasted to flective or flectional languages, although agglutinative languages also exhibit traits of flection (for example, Finnish and Udmurt), while flective languages make some use of agglutination.
