Is there someone who can help me with understanding how a word can be a morphemic noun and a syntactic adverb in the same sentence?

    A morphemic noun (person, place, thing, or idea) is a noun that can have suffix added to make it into an adverb (word used to describe a verb). In the case of the word "Man," you can use "Man" as a noun (ie The man sat down). [ If you add "-ly" to the end, you get "manly", an adverb (ie The boy had sang manly). So together in a sentence you could have "The man had a manly walk." "Man", as the noun, and "manly" being the adverb that describes the verb, "walk". ]

    So with the morphemic noun, it has to match the syntactic adverb? (going off your example of The man had a manly walk.

    I have no idea haha. Just kind of threw it in to see if I understood what you were saying. My assignment is to explain it in my own words, and for some reason my reading didn't really explain it too well.
