"Elective Affinities": Language Contact in the Abstract Lexicon and Its Structural Consequences.
Bolonyai, Agnes
International Journal of Bilingualism, v4 n1 p81-106 Mar 2000
Investigates how and what properties of abstract lexical entries in the mental lexicon interact with the distribution of surface morphemes in language contact or first language attrition. Data from Hungarian/English bilingual children provide evidence that asymmetries in the production of Hungarian preverbs and case suffixes may be explained by considering how these morphemes are elected in language production.
