Global expectations mediate local constraint: evidence from concessive structures

Numerous studies have found facilitation for lexical processing in highly constraining contexts. However, less is known about cases in which immediately preceding (local) and broader (global) contextual constraint conflict. In two eye-tracking while …

Integrating prosody in anticipatory language processing: how listeners adapt to unconventional prosodic cues

A growing body of research suggests that language users integrate diverse sources of information in processing and adapt to the variability of language at multiple levels. In two visual-world paradigm studies, we explored whether listeners use …
