Description


One of the central questions in psycholinguistics is how complex words are processed in the human mind. German ver-Verbs: Internal Word Structure and Lexical Processing explores the visual word recognition of German ver-verbs. Superficially, ver-verbs are uniform: they all begin with the sequence ver-. However, their internal structure is heterogeneous. Based on the results of various experimental designs, this book shows that the internal structure of ver-verbs is of paramount importance to their processing. Thus, the human mind employs different strategies for the processing of different types of complex words. This book is a useful companion for German, morphology, and psycholinguistics courses.
