Sentence Structure and Formality.
Levin, Harry; Garrett, Peter
Language in Society, v19 n4 p511-20 Dec 1990
Examines and tests the hypothesis that left-branching (LB) sentences are judged to be more formal than right-branching (RB), and that center-branching (CB) sentences would behave like LB. Two studies involving university students are described in which LB, RB, and CB sentence structure formality were judged. (17 references) (GLR)
