This chapter summarizes what the long-term repetition priming methodology with lexical decision has revealed about morphological processing. It selectively samples over studies conducted in a variety of languages, but focuses on previous work in English. Morphological facilitation in the long-term repetition priming task is assessed by comparing lexical decision latency or accuracy to the target preceded by a morphological relative to firstly a first presentation of the target word (i.e., no prime) and secondly an identical repetition of the target word. Sometimes researchers use the percent of identity facilitation (viz., first presentation minus related/first presentation minus identity) rather than the magnitude of facilitation (first presentation minus related) as a measure of morphological facilitation.
