EXPLORING MORPHOLOGICAL PROCESSING OF WORDS BY TURKISH LEARNERS OF ENGLISH

Abstract

Author(s): Eda DURUK, G羹l DURMU?O?LU KSE

Studies conducted so far have revealed that L1 acquirers do not include regular plurals within their compounds, whereas they do include irregulars. The present study aims to further investigate the issue in L2 English acquisition. It bases its theoretical framework on Dual Mechanism Model which suggests that regular plural nouns cannot be attached to lexical compounds. 80 advanced Turkish learners of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) were required to generate novel compounds in English. The results indicated that participants more often used irregular plurals rather than regular plurals within their compounds. However, when different presentation and response modalities were provided, it was concluded that external factors also affect the number of plurals.
