Furthermore, in Babylonian the 1SG pronoun object -ni is nearly always suffixed to the ventive suffix, neutralizing the contrast between ventive and indicative altogether.
For both prefixed and suffixed forms, decomposition and whole-route access are possible, and so in both cases we expect to see an interaction between the frequency of the derived form and the base: the more frequent the derived form is relative to the base, the more likely a whole-word representation and access strategy will be.
As argued above, we might expect the derived form to need to be relatively MORE frequent than the base in suffixed forms than in prefixed forms before signs of noncompositionality can be detected.
Despite the fact that the relevant threshold may be slightly different for prefixes and suffixes, we still expect relative frequency to be related to decompositionality in both prefixed and suffixed forms.
The availability of Websters 1913 dictionary in ascii form allowed for the automatic retrieval of definitions for the words in the dataset described in the previous section (515 prefixed and 2028 suffixed words -- all with monomorphemic bases).
