Lexical parsability and morphological structure

Marcello Ferro, Claudia Marzi, Vito Pirrelli

Abstract

In the computational framework of Temporal Self-Organising Maps (TSOMs)Marcello Ferro, Claudia Marzi and Vito Pirrelli analyse in their paper Lexical parsability and morphological structure the emergence of morphological structure in lexical acquisition to provide an explanatory basis for both psycholinguistic and linguistic accounts of lexical parsability. Simulations of the incremental acquisition of German verb paradigms in different training conditions show the correlation between frequency of word forms and perception (or lack of perception) of their structure, suggesting that it is not possible to decouple representations from the processing operations defined over representations.
