Full title: Non-words, nonce-words and morphology teaching
Acronym: NWM: NON-WORD MORPHOLOGY
Call for papers
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
The aim of this seminar is to bring together theoretical and applied
research on non-words, nonce-words, and the teaching of English
morphology. Suggested topics include (but are not restricted to):
– morphological processes in language comprehension, also models of word
– 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 28th 2014 to the following addresses:
silvia.cacchiani at unimore.it, christoph.haase at ujep.cz.
Notifcation of acceptance: March 31st 2014.
