Probabilistic Constraints and Syntactic Ambiguity Resolution.
MacDonald, Maryellen C.
Language and Cognitive Processes, v9 n2 p157-201 May 1994
Studied "pre-ambiguity" plausibility information, information about verb argument structure frequencies, and "post-ambiguity" constraints in undergraduates. All three types of constraints were helpful in the resolution of ambiguities. Ambiguity resolution becomes more difficult as the competitor interpretations becomes stronger. Study items are appended.
