There are different ways to classify landforms, but mine has just three categories: landforms that are built (depositional), landforms that are carved (erosional), and landforms that are made by movements of the Earth's crust (tectonic). Here are the most common tectonic landforms. I take a more literal approach than most textbooks and insist that tectonic motions create, or largely create, the actual landform.
