counting morphemes 8 Years ago Karma: 5  
I was just wondering if anyone had any advice for counting morphemes per word in Japanese, especially for someone who has very little experience in the language. I have read that 1 kanji = 1 morpheme, but is the kanji always 1 word, or do they have suffixes attached to them? I think the most challenging part for me is determining where each word starts and ends, as they do not make it obvious as Romanized languages do, with the spacing. I have been looking for information regarding the index of synthesis for Japanese, but no luck so far.
Thanks for any assistance
