Using Prosody to Predict the End of Sentences in English and French: Normal and Brain-Damaged Subjects.
Grosjean, Francois; Hirt, Cendrine
Language and Cognitive Processes, v11 n1-2 p107-34 Feb-Apr 1996
This study investigates the phenomenon that listeners of English were surprisingly accurate at predicting the temporal end of a sentence when only given the part up to the "potentially last word," that is a noun before an optional prepositional phrase of varying lengths. Results of four experiments using either French or English are given. (35 references) (Author/CK)
