Spontaneous speech errors provide valuable evidence not only for the
processes that mediate between a communicative intention and the
articulation of an utterance but also for the types of grammatical entities
that are manipulated during production. This study proposes an analysis of
speech errors that is informed by grammar theory. In particular, it is
shown how characteristic properties of erroneous German utterances can be
accounted for within Distributed Morphology (DM). The investigation focuses
on two groups of errors: Errors that result from the manipulation of
semantic and morphosyntactic features, and errors which appear to involve
the application of a post-error repair strategy. It is argued that a
production model which incorporates DM allows for a straightforward account
of the attested, sometimes complex, error patterns. DM mechanisms, for
instance, render unnecessary the assumption of repair processes. Besides
providing an account for the attested error patterns, the theory also helps
us in explaining why certain errors do not occur. In this sense, DM makes
for a psychologically real model of grammar.
