As more examples of forms that are analyzable but not compositional, 
consider such series as /conceive, perceive, receive, deceive/ and 
compare them with /compel, repel/ and many more of this kind. It appears 
that morphological analysis has to reckon with forms that are analyzable 
by methodological principles (of distribution, analogy etc.) without any 
requirement of "recurrent form-meaning pairings".
