Why a Sentence in Which a Sentence in Which a Sentence Is Embedded Is Embedded Is Difficult
Schlesinger, I. M.
Linguistics, 153, 53-66, Jun 1 75
The difficulty of understanding embedded sentences is discussed in relation to Bever's hypothesis: if a sentence segment has a double function by means of the same processing strategy it is difficult to interpret the sentence. An alternative to this theory is proposed due to the author's experiments. (SCC)
