stress

Add to the long list of data: misplaced stress in polysyllabic polysyllables, possibly an effect of underived lexical choices — if the syntax is looking for a derived word, but retrieval surfaces underived, the phonology may stumble on the stress between the expected derived form and the underived given. Just speculating. But it would be interesting to provide evidence of the interaction, independence and order of the phonological component in relation to the syntax and the retrieval mechanism. Other than this and tipofthetongues (if tipofthetongues are phonologically misplaced retrievals), I haven’t noticed any effect of phonology in my speech post-stroke.

I haven’t record recorded [I noticed this uninflected verb much later, which I seemed to treat the ‘d’ as the past participial inflection, or maybe treated as the stem as a strong form] these misplaced stresses yet, though I hope to, since they are, at moments, frequent. Today [I] have been clear (until I just now wrote this syncopation of I). So maybe more deficit data will be forthcoming.
