Abstract [en]

The purpose of the study has been to examine the similarities and differences of the morphological typology of English and Swedish noun phrases. The principal aim has been to analyse the synthetic and analytic properties that English and Swedish possess and compare them to each other. The secondary aim has been to analyse and compare their agglutinative and fusional properties. According to their predominant characteristics, the languages have been positioned on the Index of Synthesis and the Index of Fusion respectively. The results show that English is mainly an analytic language, while Swedish is mainly a synthetic language. English also shows predominantly agglutinating characteristics, while Swedish shows mainly fusional characteristics.
