The Morpheme Boundaries of Some English Derivational Suffixes.
Wheeler, Cathy J.; Schumsky, Donald, A.
Glossa, v14 n1 p3-34 1980
The results of three experiments investigating where native speakers have a morpheme boundary between stems and word-final English derivational suffixes are reported. The way speakers organize phonological data is demonstrated. The results challenge the generative phonological hypothesis of maximal generalization and assumptions concerning word-internal morphological segmentation. (PMJ)
