"What we need, then, is a way to tap into unconscious language processing"

Benjamin Koppel Bergen

  1. language users access noncategorical relations between phonological patterns and their phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, and social correlates
  2. language users exhibit unconscious knowledge of non-categorical interactions between factors that influence the morpho-phonological process
  3. linguistic knowledge is in fact not categorical

It is well known that correlations exist between phonological patterns on the one hand and morphological and syntax ones on the other. Not all of these correlations are categorical, though. Oftentimes, a particular part of speech or grammatical construction will only tend to correlate with a phonological pattern.
