Bates, Elizabeth; Devescovi, Antonella; D'Amico, Simona
Language and Cognitive Processes, v14 n1 p69-123 Feb 1999
Examined the extent to which cross-linguistic differences in sentence interpretation would generalize to complex sentences with an embedded clause. College students who were native speakers of English or Italian completed four experiments. Results indicated that cross-linguistic differences were maintained when students interpreted complex sentences with an embedded relative clause, and the effects held up under time pressure. (SM)
