Sung, Min-Chang; Kim, Kitaek – English Teaching, 2020

Chun, Eunjin – English Teaching, 2020
Research suggests that prediction is important for language comprehension and learning. Accordingly, it becomes crucial to understand factors that can influence prediction. In this regard, speakers' prior linguistic experience such as parsing bias has been claimed to affect prediction in the error-based learning account. To test this claim, the…
