Listening and Clarity of Syntactic Structure.
Valian, Virginia
Journal of Phonetics, v8 n3 p327-34 Jul 1980
Describes an experiment designed to determine the effect of missing syntactic cues on listeners' comprehension of grammatical sentences heard through noise. Comparison between sentences containing function word deletions and sentences with a more clearly displayed syntactic structure suggests that deletion of minor cues hinders comprehension under adverse conditions.
