Processing Compound Verbs in Persian

A Psycholinguistic Approach to Complex Predicates

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 psycholinguistic theories of polymorphic word processing as well as linguistic theories of complex predicates.
