Psycholinguistics webcast about garden-path sentences

The Cycle Linguists (Mara Breen & Brian Dillon) are thrilled to announce a psycholinguistics webcast (hopefully the first in a series) on Monday, 6/22, at 1pm EDT.

Yujing Huang (UC Davis) and Fernanda Ferreira (UC Davis) will present their recent work on garden-path sentences, followed by discussion with Patrick Sturt (University of Edinburgh) and Maayan Keshev (Tel-Aviv University).

Lingering misinterpretations of garden-path sentences: incorrect syntactic representations or fallible memory processes?

This research examines the level of representation that is responsible for misinterpretations of garden-path sentences. In two experiments, one using eye movement monitoring and the other using self-paced reading, we combined reading measures with an offline comprehension task which enabled us to conditionalize reading analyses on correct versus incorrect question-answering performance. We observed that, on both correct and incorrect trials, subjects succeeded in locating an appropriate antecedent for a reflexive pronoun, suggesting that the syntactic structure was intact following reanalysis. From this result we conclude that comprehenders’ misinterpretations of garden-path sentences are attributable to fallible memory processes.

First Words in the World International Conference

Call for Submissions

The first Words in the World International Conference will take place October 16-18, 2020  and will include scholarly presentations as well as discussion panels.

The conference brings together psycholinguistic, neurolinguistic, and computational research on the representation and processing of words in the mind/brain.

The conference will strive to create presentation opportunities for trainees (e.g., undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, recent graduates and others).

We encourage students and postdoctoral fellows from all over the world to present their in-progress or completed work at this conference and engage in conversations with their colleagues on academic and non-academic topics.

Papers presented can, of course, include a mix of trainees and faculty members.

The deadline for receipt of abstracts is August 1, 2020. View the abstract submission guidelines here: Abstract Submission Guidelines.
