The “inflected form” of a word is its form as used in context, complete with any prefixes and suffixes that may indicate its grammatical function in a given clause or sentence. For example, in English, the word unbelievable is an inflected form of the lemma believe.

This form is sometimes marked with the "Surface Text" field, which is found in a search with the field prefix surface:.

Logos Help (Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2018).

Unfortunately the example is incorrect. Inflection accounts for believe/believes/believed/believing but not disbelief, unbelievable ... which are examples of derivation.

Inflection is limited to: a change in the form of a word (typically the ending) to express a grammatical function or attribute such as tense, mood, person, number, case, and gender.

Derivation is limited to: the formation of a word from another word or from a root in the same or another language.

Etymology is limited to: the origin of a word and the historical development of its meaning.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
