    Nowadays, the research in the field advances by means of a continuous linking between the cross-linguistic uniformities and the individual language influences on development. The level of language universals is continuously refined as the data from a number of languages contribute to the elaboration of a more distinctive picture of the language.

Introduction. This book argues in favour of cross-linguistic variation in sentence processing by providing empirical data from ambiguity resolution in Greek as L1 and L2. It is maintained that in highly inflected languages, like Greek, initial parsing decisions are determined by the interaction of morphological and lexical cues rather than by universal parsing principles.

One of the core questions in sentence processing concerns the universality of the parser or, to put it differently, whether there is a universal human processing mechanism or whether it is based on cross-linguistic differences.

The models for sentence processing do not provide a uniform answer to this question. In fact, three broad types of. This book is concerned with cross-linguistic contrast of major grammatical categories in English and Chinese, two most important yet genetically different world languages.

This genetic difference has resulted in many subsidiary differences that are, among other things, related to grammar. While most psycholinguistic studies focus on a single language Cross-linguistic Variation in Sentence Processing book induce a general model of universal sentence processing, this volume proposes a cross-linguistic approach.

It contains two distinct features first embraced in the 18th century by brothers Freiherr Wilhelm von Humboldt and Alexander von Humboldt. Thirteen papers in this book illustrate MacWhinney and Bates's Competition Model (CM), with a focus on cross-linguistic processing. Studies in this volume show that (1) the CM is useful in predicting certain gross cross-linguistic differences of comprehension, particularly in relation to actor assignment and (2) children's processing strategies change over the years.

cross-linguistic study of sentence processing. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, – Kilborn & Ito offered empirical evidence for lasting L1 impacts on L2 sentence processing in adult bilinguals, extending the notion of L1-induced variation to syntactic processing.

E Carrell, P. The Competition Model is an interactive-activation framework for the study of sentence processing that is designed to handle quantitative as well as qualitative variations in performance across natural languages. Previous studies within this framework have shown that adult listeners base their interpretation of simple sentences on the most valid and reliable.

constraints on sentence processing: a cross-linguistic study. a book containing no words with a coherent story provides an ecological way of. Within the Competition Model, cue validity and cue cost can serve to make predictions about real-time sentence processing in a cross-linguistic perspective.

Previous research with monolingual children and adults in French (Kail ) and Swedish (Kail et al. ) proposed that cue cost is determined by contextual and structural information, word order and morphology.

This book argues that major patterns of variation across languages are structured by general principles of efficiency in language use and communication. Evidence for these comes from languages permitting structural choices from which selections are made in performance, e.g.

between competing word orders and between relative clauses with a resumptive pronoun. In this book John A. Hawkins argues that major patterns of variation across languages are structured by general principles of efficiency in language use and communication.

Evidence for these comes from languages permitting structural options from which selections are made in performance, e.g. between competing word orders and between relative clauses with a. The cross-linguistic differences documented in studies of relative clause attachment offer an invaluable opportunity to examine a particular aspect of bilingual sentence processing: Do bilinguals process their two languages as if they were monolingual speakers of each.

This volume provides a review of existing research on relative clause attachment, showing that speakers of. Likewise, understanding cross-linguistic variation can be important for the design of MT systems and other multilingual applications. The purpose of this book is to present in a succinct and accessible fashion information about the morphological and syntactic structure of human languages that can be useful in creating more linguistically sophisticated, more language-independent.

Contextual strategies for the interpretation of Italian variations in word order would be a central part of a functionalist grammar. Given the diversity of theories and paucity of data of processing strategies, cross-linguistic studies are particularly valuable for at least narrowing down the range of potential `universals' in sentence processing.

This study addresses the debate about whether adult language learners have access to the principles and parameters of universal grammar in constructing the grammar of a second language. The data are based on two related experiments. The first examines the interpretation of English reflexive pronouns by native speakers of Japanese and of Spanish.

Although both are SVO word order languages without case inflections to indicate basic grammatical relations, Italian permits far more variation in word order for pragmatic purposes. The book is broad in scope, covering all major aspects of the reading process and synthesizing all current reading research.
