And due to the decreasing character of all P curves, such a procedure will always imply an overestimation of the values of P for the less frequent suffixes, which can reach dramatic proportions if the affixes to be compared show great difference in token frequency, as is the case for van Marle's example of Dutch -er vs.

These are the basic categories of the simplex lexicon, and we use derivational affixes to extend these categories.
