维吾尔语派生词屈折词心理语言学Uyghur Derived Words Inflected Words Psycholinguistics



In this paper, from the perspective of psycholinguistics, through the event-related potential EEG technology, with the lexical judgment paradigm, the Uygur inflectional and derivative words processing has been studied. The experimental materials are consisted of high, low frequency derivative words and high, low frequency inflectional words. Base frequency, word length, syllable and other factors of experimental materials are strictly controlled. In the experiment, we mainly investigated the electrophysiological data and behavior data (reaction times) of the subjects in the processing of different frequencies of Uyghur derived and inflected words. The experimental results showed that there are significant differences in the processing time course between Uyghur derivatives and inflectional words. The behavioral data showed that the reaction time of high frequency inflectional words faster than that of low frequency one. But there is no difference in the reaction time of high and low frequency derivatives. In short, Uyghur derivatives are processed as a whole unit, but inflectional words are processed by decomposition.
