Research on the phonology of morphologically complex words often appeals,
implicitly or explicitly, to lexical storage and access.
A simple example is the diachronic change of a compound into a simple lexeme,
as in English 'cupboard', whose phonology is incompatible with
a compound of 'cup' and 'board'.
A more extensive case is Hay's (2003) hypothesis that whole words
and their sub-parts race for lexical access,
with resting activation determining the winner.
(For example, Hay finds more t-deletion in words like 'swiftly',
which is more frequent than 'swift', than in words like 'daftly',
which is less frequent than 'daft';
she interprets the difference as a difference in lexical access
whereby 'swiftly' is accessed as a single unit and 'daftly'
as a combination of 'daft' and 'ly'.)
This proseminar will review the psycholinguistic literature
on lexical access of morphologically complex words.
For example, under what circumstances does a complex word prime
its base or vice-versa? Do instances of the same affix prime each other?
- One goal is to get a sense of what is an a priori plausible claim about
lexical access in a particular case, given the findings that already exist
for similar cases.
- Another goal is to gain familiarity with the methods in use,
and their pros and cons, so that we'll know how feasible it is to
undertake our own psycholinguistic investigations where necessary.
- And a third goal is to gain an overall picture of models of lexical access,
in both comprehension and production, to see where in those models there might
be communication with a phonological grammar.
