A clitic is something that gets added to a word. A morpheme is a technical term for a word. It is used to define a unit of meaning in a language. Morpheme can be a word but it doesn’t have to be. In agglutinative languages, morphemes are added together into a single word, whereas in analytic languages morphemes tend to be separate words.
