Argument Structure and Association Preferences in Spanish and English Complex NPs.
Gilboy, Elizabeth; And Others
Cognition, v54 n2 p131-67 Feb 1995

In contrast to earlier findings, results provided evidence for cross-language universality of the late closure parsing principle. Results suggest that late closure is not language-specific but specific to only certain classes of phrases within a language. (DR)
