So, for example, the word "Scientists" I need to analyze according to this checklist

transcription
word class
free and bound morphemes
morphological process ( what does that even mean ?)
Allomorphs
conditioning
rules of conditioning
derivational function
word class Stem-derived

Well, I can do three of those:

World class - 'scientist' is a common, concrete noun.

Free morphemes are words that can stand on their own. In this case, it's 'science'.

Bound morphemes are groups of letters that aren't words. They are involved in the process of affixation - either prefixes or suffixes. An example is the -ist suffix.
