The present study investigates the role of morphological structure in the organization of the English Mental Lexicon. Motivated by the Marslen-Wilson et al. (1994) study, we investigated the representation and access of derived words in the performance of English-speaking subjects. Adopting as a point of departure Kiparsky's (1982) proposal for the organization of the lexicon, we investigated the effect of the type of suffix (Level 1 - phonological change in derivation versus Level 2 -absence of phonological change in derivation) on the subject's on line performance during word recognition and the possible implications for mental representation.
