Ullman, Michael T.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v14 n1 p47-67 Feb 1999
Elicited acceptability ratings from native-English-speaking adults for regular and irregular past tense forms and their stems, in sentence contexts, analyzing them for frequency and phonological neighborhood effects. Results indicate that irregular past tenses are retrieved from associative memory, whereas regular past tenses are produced by a suffixation rule. (SM)
