Lexical Composition and the Production of Compounds: Evidence from Errors in Naming.
Badecker, William
Language and Cognitive Processes, v16 n4 p337-66 Aug 2001
Argues that the lexical production system takes a compositional approach to processing morphologically complex forms in cases of productive word formation even if the semantics of the word cannot be derived formally from the meaning of its constituents. Evidence is presented from a case of acquired naming impairment in a patient whose ability to name objects with compound names is particularly disrupted. (Author/VWL)
