This article examines the Danish noun plural system in spoken language, i.e. we depart from a – radically new – sound perspective. We consider suffixes for which the categorization is not isomorphic with the orthographically determined categories. We give an overview of phonological stem changes, and we find interesting patterns of stød change in monosyllables. We identify 23 different combinations of suffixation and stem change, and give lexical frequencies for them. We consider two aspects of… 

Sound structure and input frequency impact on noun plural acquisition: Hypotheses tested on Danish children across different data types

This study analyses the emergence of the noun plural category in typically developing Danish-speaking children from its first appearance up to the age of 10 years, focusing on the impact of sound

Interaction between input frequency, transparency and productivity in acquisition of noun plural inflection in Danish

Abstract Acquisition of the Danish noun plural system is interesting in regard to testing hypotheses on input frequency effects: whereas English is characterized by having one default inflectional

Interaction between cognitive and other factors in the acquisition of Danish noun plural inflection

The acquisition of the Danish noun plural system is particularly interesting in this regard: whereas English is characterized by having one default inflectional marker for a grammatical category

The impact of sound structure on morphology: An experimental study on children's acquisition of German and Danish noun plurals focusing on stem change

This study examines the impact of sound structure on children's acquisition of noun plural morphology, focusing on stem change. For this purpose, a three-level classification of stem change

Stød in unexpected morphological contexts in Standard Danish: An experimental approach to sound change in progress

Abstract In recent years stød has appeared in words where the current phonological and morphological principles of its distribution would exclude it. Thus, a disyllable like [ˈsiːðə] side ‘page’ is

Suffix predictability and stem transparency in the acquisition of German noun plurals

TLDR
Results show that both variables have an impact on children’s correct production of plural forms; there was no significant interaction between the two variables in the acquisition process.

Sonority, gender and the impact of suffix predictability on the acquisition of German noun plurals

TLDR
A new method of assessing distributional properties of plural suffix application in German in which the predictability of a given suffix is calculated according to sonority/gender distributions in actual language use, in this case, in child-directed speech.

Prosody, productivity and word structure: the stød pattern of Modern Danish

Parts of a new model of phonology-morphology-lexicon interplay is presented to account for the complex distribution of the Modern Danish stød (a syllabic prosody). Stød, which is sometimes productive

The impact of sound structure on morphology: An experimental study on children's acquisition of German and Danish noun plurals focusing on stem change

This study examines the impact of sound structure on children's acquisition of noun plural morphology, focusing on stem change. For this purpose, a three-level classification of stem change

German Inflection: The Exception That Proves the Rule

TLDR
This work finds 21 circumstances for regular past tense formation, including novel, unusual-sounding, and rootless and headless derived words; in every case, people inflect them regularly and are evidence for a memory-independent, symbol-concatenating mental operation.

TLDR
Evidence for the dual nature of the language faculty is provided by describing recent results of a multidisciplinary investigation of German inflection and a linguistic model is explained in terms of the traditional view of the lexicon as a simple list of idiosyncrasies with the notion of internally structured lexical representations is replaced.
