Department Colloquium: Morphological skills in developmental dyslexia

In this talk, I will discuss the results of recent studies on Italian (a language with transparent orthography and rich morphology), which cast light on the dyslexic disadvantage across domains of inflectional and derivational morphology. The focus will be on verb-based derivation and on the role of conjugation classes across word formation phenomena, but inflection in the nominal domain will be explored too, so as to provide a thorough assessment of the morphological skills of children with typical development and with dyslexia.
