The term Mor. Originally implies the study of grammatical changes of isolated words by means of affixation as En. Has very few inflexions and most gr means are expressed analytical;ly
From the point of view of stylistic morphology will concern not only morphemes but any means of expressing gram meanings.
2 trends in styl mor
Paradigmatic equivalence or at least interchangeability of different morphemes.
2)Variability of use of morphological categorical forms(tense,aspect, person)
The synonymy is not well-developed. The opposition of variants of gram morphemes is still noticeable from the point of stylistic prominants of stylistic foregrounding.

the subjunctive mood- If I were a doctor

Grammatical form is not confined to an individual meaning of the word because grammatical meaning is very abstract & general ex: oats-wheat: The grammatical form of oats is clearly plural and grammatical form of wheat is singular, but we can’t say that oats are more than one& wheat is one. So here we say that oats is grammatical. Plural & wheat is grammatical singular. There is no clear one-to-one correspondence between grammatical category of singular & plural and counting them in reality in terms of “one” and “more than one”.
Grammatical forms can be morphemes, synthetic forms, and grammatical word combinations, which are analytical forms. Synthetic forms unite both lexical and grammatical meanings in one word. In analytical forms there two or more words in which at least one element is an auxiliary. The auxiliary is a constant element of an analytical structure, which is devoid of lexical meaning (it renders grammatical meanings and is a purely grammatical element). Analytical structures must be differentiated from free syntactical word combinations. In free syntactical word combinations all the elements possess both lexical and grammatical meanings.
