Article
There is little consensus in the Japanese syntax literature on the question of whether complex NPs with a complement clause headed by to yuu ‘that say’ are islands for NP-scrambling dependencies. To explore this question, we conducted two acceptability judgment experiments using the factorial definition of islands to test the island status of noun...

Syntactic properties such as word orders are a major factor determining the difficulty of a sentence. In SO-type languages where the subject (S) precedes the object (O) in canonical word order, there is clear evidence that the SO word order is preferred over the OS word order. We investigate to what extent this SO bias is maintained even in typolog...

In many languages with subject-before-object as a syntactically basic word order, transitive sentences in which the subject precedes the object have been reported to have a processing advantage over those in which the subject follows the object in sentence comprehension. Three sources can be considered to account for this advantage, namely, syntact...

Word learning research has shown that learners constrain the hypothesis space for word meanings by using multiple sources of information, such as cross-situational regularities of word-context co-occurrences or syntactic cues, like the number of arguments. These studies typically focus on word meaning development where these cues can be helpful but...
Article
This paper reports a series of formal acceptability-judgment experiments designed to investigate the syntactic properties of a relatively understudied type of wh-dependency: multiple wh-questions in English. By using a factorial definition of island effects made available only by formal experiments, we report an unpredicted pattern of acceptability...
Article
In summary, Hornstein suggests one potentially fruitful and exciting direction that the current minimalist might pursue. Trying to minimize “overly linguistic” parts of grammar, such as c-command, we will have a better chance to explain how the Faculty of Language arises in the human mind. Some crucial mechanisms for language, such as Concatenate,...
Article
This paper attempts to develop Pesetsky and Torrego's (2001) idea that the C of wh-interrogatives and the C of wh-exclamatives are syntactically identical. The discussion starts with their assumption that the C of wh-clauses has an uninterpretable Tense feature and an uninterpretable wh-feature. It is argued that English facts suggest that, as Pese...

Previous studies have shown that both frequency and expectation for upcoming structures play an important role on sentence processing. However, it is still unclear which one of these factors has a stronger impact on sentence processing. In order to explore the possible effects of frequency and expectation; we conducted a corpus analysis in Japanese...

This paper investigates mechanisms of long-distance dependency formation in lan-guage comprehension, using experimental data on the processing of Japanese interrog-atives and exclamatives to explore the nature of locality biases in parsing. Findings on the processing of exclamative wh-phrases are compared to previous results involving the processin...

Using a structural priming paradigm, the details of sentence production model have been investigated substantially, specifically the processes in grammatical encoding level. Many studies provide evidence that the function assignment stage and the constituent assembly stage are processed separately in grammatical encoding. However, it is less known...
