Junmei, Jiang – Journal on English Language Teaching, 2015
Based on the Chinese Learner English Corpus, the present study seeks to investigate the developmental characteristics of the use of adverbial conjuncts. And the results show that at different learning stages Non-English majors use all kinds of adverbial conjuncts, but their occurrence frequencies are quite different, the enumerative adverbials are…

Temperley, David; Gildea, Daniel – Cognitive Science, 2015
In noun phrase (NP) coordinate constructions (e.g., NP and NP), there is a strong tendency for the syntactic structure of the second conjunct to match that of the first; the second conjunct in such constructions is therefore low in syntactic information. The theory of uniform information density predicts that low-information syntactic…

Alzaid, Muhammad Swaileh A. – Advances in Language and Literary Studies, 2018
We identify and propose an analysis in LFG of Gapping construction in Taif "Hijazi" Arabic (TA). Gapping occurs in a coordination structure where the initial conjunct is syntactically complete and the non-initial conjunct is incomplete. To my knowledge, there is no previous description or analysis of gapping in TA. There have been two…

Brittain, Julie; Rose, Yvan – First Language, 2021
This study is based on naturalistic speech samples produced by one child learning Cree as her first language (2;01-4;03) and presents the first investigation into the development of preverbs in the language. Preverbs are an optional class of morpheme which precede the lexical verb stem, dividing into grammatical, lexical and directional (deictic)…

Wabnegger, Albert; Gremsl, Andreas; Schienle, Anne – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Previous research has shown that people who endorse conspiracy theories are more prone to the conjunction fallacy: the tendency to perceive conjunct events as more probable than constituent events. The present study examined the relationship between specific beliefs (belief in conspiracy theories, religiosity) and the susceptibility to conjunction…

Bloom, Ronald J.; And Others – Applied Psycholinguistics, 1996
Examines the use and understanding of concordant and discordant adverbial conjuncts in the latter part of the life span. Young, middle-aged, and elderly adults, matched for education level, were studied. Results indicate a significant decline in processing adverbial conjuncts in the elderly, due to a deficit in linguistic processing rather than a…

Tentori, Katya; Crupi, Vincenzo; Russo, Selena – Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, 2013
Major recent interpretations of the conjunction fallacy postulate that people assess the probability of a conjunction according to (non-normative) averaging rules as applied to the constituents' probabilities or represent the conjunction fallacy as an effect of random error in the judgment process. In the present contribution, we contrast such…

Callahan, Sarah M.; Shapiro, Lewis P.; Love, Tracy – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2010
This study investigated the processes underlying parallelism by evaluating the activation of a parallel element (i.e., a verb) throughout "and"-coordinated sentences. Four points were tested: (1) approximately 1,600ms after the verb in the first conjunct (PP1), (2) immediately following the conjunction (PP2), (3) approximately 1,100ms after the…

Jönsson, Martin L. – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2015
Hampton (1988) discovered that people are subject to "overextension"--they categorize some things as falling under a conjunction (e.g., they categorize chess as a "sport which is also a game") but not as falling under both of the corresponding conjuncts (e.g., they do not categorize chess as a "sport"). Although…

Ellis, David; Allen, David; Wilson, Tom – Journal of the American Society for Information Science, 1999
Examines the relationship between information science and information-systems (IS) research through analysis of the subject literature of each field and by citation and co-citation analysis of highly cited researchers in each field. Subfields of user studies and information-retrieval research were selected to represent information-science…

Autonomous Metropolitan Univ., Mexico City (Mexico). – 1979
Traditional studies of contrastive connectives (for example "yet,""in contrast,""however,""nevertheless," and "on the other hand") emphasized the logical relationship expressed by these connectives as they connect two sections of text. In harmony with this approach, constrastive connectives are…

Hong, Sung-Ryong; Na, Won-Shik – Journal of Pan-Pacific Association of Applied Linguistics, 2011
There have been long argumentations about this topic and people are still having difficulty in explaining precisely what the agreement values the mother NP phrase should have from two conjunct daughters which have different AGR (Agreement) values. Especially, this could be more complicated when the values of gender, number, and person of each…

Lohndal, Terje – ProQuest LLC, 2012
This dissertation attempts to unify two reductionist hypotheses: that there is no relational difference between specifiers and complements, and that verbs do not have thematic arguments. I argue that these two hypotheses actually bear on each other and that we get a better theory if we pursue both of them. The thesis is centered around the…

Tutunjian, Damon A. – ProQuest LLC, 2010
This dissertation examines the influence of lexical-semantic representations, conceptual similarity, and contextual fit on the processing of coordinated verb phrases. The study integrates information gleaned from current linguistic theory with current psycholinguistic approaches to examining the processing of coordinated verb phrases. It has…

Kobayashi, Yuichiro; Abe, Mariko – Journal of Pan-Pacific Association of Applied Linguistics, 2016
The purpose of the present study is to investigate the impact of learners' L1s and proficiency levels on their written production. This study also examined the influence of speech upon their writing. The following research questions were explored: (a) How do L1 and proficiency levels of learners affect their degrees of register awareness? (b)…
