This book presents the first detailed empirical study of irregular verb
morphology in the German-English interlanguage. Starting with a theoretical
in-depth account of irregular verb morphology both in English and German,
three widely discussed theses about its nature are tested against a wide
range of empirical data, both from L1 and L2. Although the findings partly
confirm existing models and theories, the data also show the need for
further re-examination of some fundamental questions through associative or
probabilistic computer models. All in all this book provides a rigorous,
profound and thought-provoking discussion of the phenomenon in question.
This involves an up-to-date revision of existing theories as well as the
cross-linguistic examination of L1 and L2 data by an array of sophisticated
multivariate statistical models. The book is mainly directed towards
university students of German and English linguistics, psycholinguistics
and language acquisition at an advanced level.
