This study investigates the role of probability matching in the selection of morphological lexical representations by adults. Whereas children rely on application of a morphological default that results in regularization, adults match probabilities with pre-existing lexical distributions. This hypothesis is supported with a series of case studies involving grammatical gender assignment to loanwords from Arabic to Iberian Romance and vice versa, and pluralization in second-language acquisition of Arabic.
