Lexical Expectations in Sentence Comprehension.
Clifton, Charles, Jr.,; And Others
Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, v23 n6 p696-708 Dec 1984

Results also indicated that lexically based expectations involve the use of information about appropriate syntactic or thematic categories. (SL)
