CUNY 2017 at MIT

I will be presenting joint work with Brian Dillon next week at CUNY 2017 at MIT. The poster, entitled Restricting domains of retrieval: Evidence for clause-bound processing from agreement attraction, presents three experiments that argue clauses play a role in restricting how retrieval in long-distance dependencies occur. The crucial finding, that the content within clausal and phrasal modifiers are not equally available, extends the finding of Bock & Cutting 1992 to processing and motivates a revision of the cue-based retrieval model of Lewis & Vasishth 2005, who predict effects in the opposite direction.

The poster session will take place Friday, March 31 from 12pm-2pm. At this time, an electronic copy will be made available here.
