Description: Previous research has shown that heritage speakers struggle with inflectional morphology. Here we report results from a masked priming experiment with 97 bilingual (Turkish/German) heritage speakers and a control group of 40 non-heritage speakers of Turkish examining regular and irregular forms of the Turkish aorist. We found that for the regular aorist, heritage speakers use the same morphological decomposition mechanism (‘affix stripping’) as control speakers, whereas for processing irregularly inflected forms they exhibited more variability (i.e., less homogeneous performance) than the control group. Heritage speakers also demonstrated semantic priming effects. At a more general level, these results indicate that heritage speakers draw on multiple sources of information for recognizing morphologically complex words.


Morphological processing in heritage speakers: A masked priming study on the Turkish aorist The components of this project entail the experimental stimuli used for data collection, the data collected and cleaned for analysis (i.e., errors and outliers removed), the variability data for each condition and the R script used for statistical analysis.
