Two reaction time experiments investigated the production of the past tense in English in response to the auditory presentation of the present tense of the verb and showed a trend towards slower RTs when past tense forms from different sub-regularities follow one another, suggesting interference between one sub- regularity and another.

Deficits in phonology and past tense morphology

Neuropsychological dissociations between regular and irregular past tense verb processing have been explained in two ways: (a) separate mechanisms of a rule-governed process for regular verbs and a

Irregular past tense forms in English: how data from children with specific language impairment contribute to models of morphology

Two cognitive models of inflectional morphology are widely debated in the literature—the Words and Rules model, whereby irregular forms are stored in the lexicon but regular forms are created by

Facts, Events, and Inflection: When Language and Memory Dissociate

Two brain-damaged patients who show contrasting patterns of deficits in memory and language functioning reveal that the retrieval of irregular inflections proceeds relatively autonomously with respect to declarative memory.

Getting to the Meaning of the Regular Past Tense: Evidence from Neuropsychology

The findings suggest that the patients are delayed in activating the meaning of verbs if a regular past tense affix is appended, consistent with a dual-route account of their deficit.

Morpho-syntactic and morpho-phonological deficits in the production of regularly and irregularly inflected verbs

Background: The background to the study is the debate in relation to the English regular/irregular past tense forms. Aims: The purpose of the investigation was the evaluation of the dual mechanism

Storage and processing of Dutch morphological information : Early electrophysiological responses to lexical, morphological and syntactic information

The work in this dissertation aims at shedding new light on how humans store and process simple and complex words: electrophysiological responses elicited by native Dutch speakers are compared across



Acceptability Ratings of Regular and Irregular Past-tense Forms: Evidence for a Dual-system Model of Language from Word Frequency and Phonological Neighbourhood Effects

What are the computational and representational bases of the mental lexicon of words, and of the rules of grammar which productively combine lexical forms into larger words, phrases and sentences?

A Neural Dissociation within Language: Evidence that the Mental Dictionary Is Part of Declarative Memory, and that Grammatical Rules Are Processed by the Procedural System

Evidence is presented that the lexicon is part of a temporal-parietalhnedial-temporal declarative memory system and that granlmatical rules are processed by a frontamasal-ganglia procedural system.

The Declarative/Procedural Model of Lexicon and Grammar

It is argued that converging evidence from studies that use a range of psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic approaches with children and adults supports the declarative/procedural model of lexicon and grammar.

The neural basis of lexicon and grammar in first and second language: the declarative/procedural model

Theoretical and empirical aspects of the neural bases of the mental lexicon and the mental grammar in first and second language (L1 and L2) are discussed. It is argued that in L1, the learning,

The past and future of the past tense

Dissociating types of mental computation

The regular and irregular past tense are supported by different neural systems, which can become dissociated by damage to the brain, evidence for functional and neurological distinctions in the types of mental computation that support these different aspects of linguistic and cognitive performance.
