Metanalysis

 

the rearrangement of morpheme boundaries in a word or word group. A single morpheme may become two successive morphemes, and two or more successive morphemes may become one by de-etymologization; a shift in morpheme boundaries frequently occurs. Metanalysis is seen in the Russian proforma (“formality”), which derives from the Latin pro forma (“for the sake of form”); the Russian s nim (“with him,” “with it”), which derives from the Old Russian sõn imõ; and the French m’amie (“my girlfriend”), which derives from ma mie (“my dear”).
