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 …

Learning to anticipate with unconventional prosodic mappings: The L2 advantage

Learning to anticipate contrast with prosody: A visual world study with L2 learners

Listeners’ beliefs about the speaker and adaptation to the deviant use of prosody

Three visual-world eye-tracking experiments investigated how listeners responded to proper conventional (Exp.1) and unconventional (Exp.2-3) uses of contrastive accent. Exp.1 confirmed that conventional uses of contrastive accent lead anticipatory …

Prosody-meaning mismatches in PP ambiguity: Incremental processing with pupillometry

We report the results of a pupillometry experiment on the prosodic disambiguation of PP modifier sentences. We manipulated instrument plausibility ('pen' vs. 'gun') and prosodic boundary placement, so that a prosodic boundary biased towards a …

Cue reliability affects anticipatory use of prosody in processing globally ambiguous sentences.
