This is the first book-length analysis of the way that Persian compound verbs are processed in the mental lexicon. The study of this process offers ways to infer how these verbs are stored, organized, and accessed, drawing on psycho-linguistic theories of polymorphic word processing as well as linguistic theories of complex predicates.
Anousha Sedighi, Portland State University
“Solid scholarly research. . . . The significance of the current study lies in the fact that it applies the findings of the existing theories to cutting-edge empirical research.”
