Sentence Processing with Empty Categories.
Gibson, Edward; Hickok, Gregory
Language and Cognitive Processes, v8 n2 p147-61 May 1993
Pickering and Barry's recent argument against the existence of empty categories (ECs) in human sentence processing is disputed. It is argued here that ECs may still play a linking role between thematic role assigners and wh-phrases. One possible parsing algorithm is given that accounts for Pickering and Barry's data.
