Psycholinguists study the acquisition of morphological knowledge and the way in which complex words are stored, perceived, and produced. The mental lexicon is a central concept in modelling the storage of complex words in the lexical memory of the speaker. The proper modelling of processing complex words is an important battlefield for competing theories of language perception and production.

Keywords: mental lexicon; language acquisition; symbolic model; connectionism; morphological processing
