Abstract:The experiments in this dissertation investigated the influence of word order and attentional processes (between vs. within words) on the parafoveal processing during reading of inflectional morphology of nouns and verbs in Russian by native speakers and L2 learners via the boundary-change paradigm (Rayner, 1975) and it’s modified within-word version (Hyöna, Bertram, and Pollatsek, 2004). Syntactic position of the target word and allocation of attention on the target word affected the time-course of morphological processing in native speakers but not in L2 learners due to increased processing during all stages of word identifications: orthographic, lexical access, and post-lexical integration.
