Engemann, U. Marie and Ingo Plag 2021 Phonetic reduction and paradigm uniformity effects in spontaneous speechThe Mental Lexicon 16:1, pp. 165–198 | Article
Recent work on the acoustic properties of complex words has found that morphological information may influence the phonetic properties of words, e.g. acoustic duration. Paradigm uniformity has been proposed as one mechanism that may cause such effects. In a recent experimental study Seyfarth… read more
To what extent do speakers decompose morphologically complex words, such as segmentable, into their morphological constituents? In this article, we argue that spelling errors in English affixes reflect morphological boundary strength and degrees of segmentability. In support of this argument, we… read more
Bakker, Peter, Aymeric Daval-Markussen, Mikael Parkvall and Ingo Plag 2013 Creoles are typologically distinct from non-creolesCreole Languages and Linguistic Typology, Bhatt, Parth and Tonjes Veenstra (eds.), pp. 9–45 | Article
In creolist circles, there has been a long-standing debate whether creoles differ structurally from non-creole languages and thus would form a special class of languages with specific typological properties. This debate about the typological status of creole languages has severely suffered from a… read more
Plag, Ingo 2013 Creolization and admixture: Typology, feature pools, and second language acquisitionCreole Languages and Linguistic Typology, Bhatt, Parth and Tonjes Veenstra (eds.), pp. 141–162 | Article
Proponents of a ‘feature pool’ approach to creolization (e.g. Mufwene 2001, Aboh & Ansaldo 2006) have claimed that the emergence of the new grammar is driven by the syntax-discourse prominence, markedness, and frequency of available features, with typological similarity or dissimilarity of the… read more

Plag, Ingo 2011 Pidgins and creolesStudying Processability Theory: An Introductory Textbook, Pienemann, Manfred and Jörg-U. Keßler (eds.), pp. 106–120 | Article
This chapter discusses pidgin and creole languages, that is languages that have emerged in contact situations in which second language acquisition has played a prominent role. It is shown that the creation of many of the morphosyntactic structures we find in these contact languages can be… read more
Plag, Ingo and Christian Uffmann 2000 Phonological restructuring in creole: The development of paragoge in SrananDegrees of Restructuring in Creole Languages, Neumann-Holzschuh, Ingrid and Edgar W. Schneider (eds.), pp. 309 ff. | Article
Plag, Ingo 1998 Ingo PlagJournal of Pidgin and Creole Languages 13:1, pp. 210–212 | Miscellaneous
Plag, Ingo 1998 Review of Schneider (1996): Focus on the USAEnglish World-Wide 19:1, pp. 129–132 | Review
There is an ongoing debate on how speakers and listeners process and interpret information in a morphological system that is very complex and not very transparent. A well-known test case is the German nominal number system. In this paper we employ discriminative learning (e.g., Ramscar &… read more
