Psycholing/ Compling Seminar: Jesse Harris practice talk “Let alone ellipsis and the case for enduring default focus: A pupillometry study”

To interpret the remnant (a marathon), the processor must locate the contrasting correlate phrase (a mile) in the prior clause from among other same-category competitors. Experimental and corpus research finds that the...

Psycholing/ Compling Seminar: Claire-Moore Cantwell: Gambler’s Fallacy effects in probabilistic wug-test responses

In particular, they avoid giving the same response three times in a row. This effect was strongest when two options were explicitly presented (a 2-alternative forced choice task), and weaker when participants were simply asked to...

The goal of this project is to provide clinicians...

I will then...
