We report two lexical decision experiments analyzing Russian prefixed and unprefixed verbs and deverbal nouns. These experiments show that the summed frequency of direct derivatives influences access time to the base word. We demonstrate that this effect cannot be explained by semantic or phonological similarity and is not due to the fact that derived words undergo morphological decomposition during lexical access.
