Abstract

This study investigates the phenomenon of weakening or regularization in Dutch verb morphology synchronically: how often do forms such as kiesde 'choosed' or graafde 'digged' occur, how acceptable are they, and what factors influence the production of weakified rather than strong forms? Based on production and acceptability tasks in a sample of 240 Dutch and Flemish informants, the observations of weakification will be outlined in detail, with particular reference to geographical variation and to various aspects of the 'past tense debate' (Pinker, 1998).
