Garden Path Sentences and Error Data in Second Language Sentence Processing.
Juffs, Alan; Harrington, Michael
Language Learning, v46 n2 p283-326 Jun 1996
Expands on the authors' (1995) investigation of the parsing performance on "wh"-movement sentences by Chinese-speaking learners of English. The article compares the difficulty second-language learners have in parsing subject "wh"-traces in embedded finite and nonfinite clauses with the problems they have in parsing Garden Path sentences. Results indicate a parsing deficit for these learners. (35 references) (Author/CK)
