Syllable Structure and External Evidence.
Kansas Working Papers in Linguistics, v22 n1 p107-120 1997
To determine what psycholinguistic evidence (or external evidence) such as slips of the tongue, monosyllabic word blends, and novel word games reveals about syllable structure, this study focused on psycholinguistic research on the English and German syllable. English and German provide a good testing ground for evaluation of external evidence because much external evidence has been interpreted as revealing the internal organization of the syllable for both languages. It is concluded that psycholinguistic evidence does not reveal syllable structure, but rather how the linguistic processor organizes syllable-internal segments. Contains 39 references. (MSE)
