Vowel Dominance and Morphological Processing.
Stemberger, Joseph Paul; Middleton, Christine Setchell
Language and Cognitive Processes, v18 n4 p369-404 Aug 2003
In morphological processing in adult speech, irregular forms are subject to several types of errors, including overgeneralization and overtensing. A morphonaming task found that probability of these errors is affected by a phonological factor that derives from vowel phoneme frequencies in a complex fashion: whether the vowel in the past tense form is dominant relative to the vowel in the base form or recessive relative to the base vowel.
