Research interests focus mainly on language representations in the mental lexicon focusing different patterns of morphological processing in German. Previous research included the role of the family size in the morphological processing of German prefixed verbs and the role of prefixes and particles for the morphological presentation of German verbs in the mental lexicon. The focus of the dissertation is the processing of morphological constructions especially the role of derivations from a synchronic and diachronic perspective. It includes ERP studies about simple vs. complex patterns of derivations and zero derivations in the brain.
