While psycho- and neurolinguistics (e.g. Marslen-Wilson 1987, 2007, Kielar et al. 2008, Rastle et al. 2008, Crepaldi 2010) have shown increasing interest in the representation of non-words, nonce-words or nonsensical words in the mental lexicon, their potential as a yardstick for the morphological competence of L2 learners has not been widely explored. The aim of this seminar is to bring together theoretical and applied research on non-words, nonce-words, and the teaching of English morphology.
