Morphology is a geographical term referring to shape. Schools of geography include geomorphology - examining the shape of the Earth's surface and the geological and geotectonic origins of this, and urban morphology - examining and explaining the development and form of human settlements.

In biology, morphology is the branch of biology concerned with the form and structure of organisms.[1]

In linguistics, morphology is the study of the form and structure of words in a language. Morphology is the study of morphemes, which are the units of meaning in a language (words, word stems, and affixes).[2] Morphology is divided into derivational morphology (the formation of new words from old ones) and inflectional morphology (the changes in a word to show grammatical features).[3]
