Meeting Description:

The Seminar 'Non-words, nonce-words and morphology teaching' will be held within the 12th ESSE Conference in Košice, Slovakia.


Silvia Cacchiani, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy
Christoph Haase, Purkyně University, Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic

While psycho- and neurolinguistics (e.g. Marslen-Wilson 1987, 2007, Kielar et al. 2008, Rastle et al. 2008, Crepaldi 2010) have shown increasing interest in the representation of non-words, nonce-words or nonsensical words in the mental lexicon, their potential as a yardstick for the morphological competence of L2 learners has not been widely explored. The aim of this seminar is to bring together theoretical and applied research on non-words, nonce-words, and the teaching of English morphology.

Call for Papers:

Suggested topics include (but are not restricted to):

- Morphological processes in language comprehension, also models of word recognition
- Analogy in morphology and analogy in L2 learning
- Best practice in morphology teaching
- Learner access to lexical strata, feature percolation and permissibility, and related performance

Please send your abstract totaling no more than 300 words (including references) by February 1, 2014 to the following addresses: silvia.cacchianiunimore.it, christoph.haaseujep.cz.
