Reading Sentences with a Late Closure Ambiguity: Does Semantic Information Help?
Lipka, Sigrid
Language and Cognitive Processes, v17 n3 p271-98 Jun 2002
Three studies are reported that addressed methodological problems in Stowe's (1989) study, which reported that semantic information eliminates garden paths in sentences with direct object versus subject ambiguity, such as in "Even before the police stopped the driver was frightened." Findings support a sentence processing system relying on syntactic information with semantic information playing a weaker role. (Author/VWL)
