This course is a Psycholinguistics seminar designed for graduate students and for strongly motivated undergraduates who have taken Psych 445/Ling 447. A primary focus will be on the interface between syntactic and semantic processing in comprehension, but other topics may be covered, depending on student interest. Likely topics include the following:

  1. Syntactic parallelism during ambiguous regions,
  2. Understanding filler-gap sentences,
  3. Argument assignment by reciprocal verbs (e.g., kiss),
  4. Head-final structures, and
  5. How does prominence affect the lexical/syntactic/semantic interface?
