Sentence Processing without Empty Categories.
Pickering, Martin; Barry, Guy
Language and Cognitive Processes, v6 n3 p229-59 Aug 1991
Provides evidence that sentence processing does not make use of grammatical theories with empty categories. A linguistic account is provided of unbounded dependencies that do not use empty categories and can serve as the basis of a processing model. It is concluded that empty categories are not psychologically real. (28 references) (JL)
