The Relationship of Verb Morphology to Second Language Reading Comprehension and Input Processing.
Lee, James F.
Modern Language Journal, v82 n1 p33-48 Spr 1998
A study investigated the effects of varying the morphological characteristics of input on comprehension and input processing. Nine targeted subjunctive verbs in a text were substituted with infinitives and a nonsense morpheme. Passage comprehension, measured by recall, was significantly lower for the correct, subjunctive forms than for incorrect forms. Input processing, measured by word recognition task, was not affected.
