Plural morphology in compounding is not good evidence to support the dual mechanism model
Abstract:The compounding phenomena is considered to be good??evidence to support the dual mechanism model of??morphological processing (Pinker & Prince, 1992). However??evidence from initial neural net modeling has shown that a??single route associative memory based account might provide??an equally, if not more valid explanation of the treatment of??plurals in compounds. Further neural net modeling and??empirical work is proposed to test this single route accoun

Experimental evidence indicates that regular plurals are nearly always omitted from English compounds (e.g., rats-eater) while irregular plurals may be included within these structures (e.g., mice-chaser). This phenomenon is considered to be good evidence to support the dual mechanism model of morphological processing (Pinker & Prince, 1992). However, evidence from neural net modelling has show...
Compound words with irregular plural nouns in first\ud position (e.g. mice-eater) are produced far more frequently\ud than compound words with regular plural nouns in first\ud position (e.g. *rats-eater), (Gordon, 1985). Using\ud empirical evidence and neural net modelling, the studies\ud presented here demonstrate how a single route, associative\ud memory based account might provide an equally...
Cappadocian Greek (Dawkins, 1916; Janse, 2002) differs from more familiar Greek varieties in possessing a novel morphological construction that has been claimed by Thomason & Kaufman (1988) and Janse (2001) to display a shift from the ‘inherited’ Greek fusional morphology to an ‘innovative’ type of agglutinative morphology, which they classify as a case of contact-induced language change (CILC)...
Native English speakers include irregular plurals in??English noun-noun compounds (e.g. mice chaser)??more frequently than regular plurals (e.g. *rats chaser)??(Gordon, 1985). This dissociation in inflectional??morphology has been argued to stem from an internal??and innate morphological constraint as it is thought??that the input to which English speaking children are??exposed is insufficient ...
