A Positron Emission Tomographic Study of Regular and Irregular Verb Morphology in English.
Jaeger, Jeri J.; And Others
Language, v72 n3 p451-97 Sep 1996
Presents data from a positron emission tomographic study in which subjects were asked to produce the past tense forms of regular, irregular and nonce stems. Findings, which support the grammar/lexicon linguistic theories, reveal different amounts and areas of cortical activation in the regular and irregular tasks, as well as significantly different reaction times in producing the past tenses.
