Lexical gaps and morphological complexity: the role of intermediate derivational steps

Abstract:

In this thesis, we present a multi-method investigation of how lexical gaps, defined here as morphologically and phonologically viable formations, are processed in derivational chains. Due to a focus on the processing of single-affixed words in the experimental literature, little is known about the role of intermediate steps of derivation during morphological decomposition.

In a series of four behavioural experiments, we show that while all morphologically well-formed items act...
