Morphology as processed by the human brain

Speaker:
Kristýna Tomšů
Abstract:
In my talk, I will present an overview of recent trends in  studying morphology from the neurolinguistic perspective.  Neurolinguistic investigations of morphology started by discussing  whether morphologically complex words are represented in the brain in a decomposed manner or stored as whole forms. While nowadays there is a  wide agreement that representations of complex words have at least  partial morphological structure, it is still not clear what precisely  determines whether such structure emerges for a particular word or not; commonly mentioned factors are transparency, constituent frequency or  type of affixation. I will discuss these and propose experiments that  can contribute to the debate about this topic.
