Perspectives on Sentence Processing

Synopsis

One of the liveliest forums for sharing psychological, linguistic, philosophical, and computer science perspectives on psycholinguistics has been the annual meeting of the CUNY Sentence Processing Conference. Documenting the state of the art in several important approaches to sentence processing, this volume consists of selected papers that had been presented at the Sixth CUNY Conference. The editors not only present the main themes that ran through the conference but also honor the breadth of the presentations from disciplines including linguistics, experimental psychology, and computer science. The variety of sentence processing topics examined includes:

• how evoked brain potentials reflect sentence comprehension

• how auditory words are processed

• how various sources of grammatical and nongrammatical information are coordinated and used

• how sentence processing and language acquisition might be related.

This distinctive volume not only presents the most exciting current work in sentence processing, but also places this research into the broader context of theorizing about it.
