Abstract:

Provides data from ambiguity resolution in Greek as L1 and L2

This book argues in favour of cross-linguistic variation in sentence
processing by providing empirical data from ambiguity resolution in Greek
as L1 and L2. It is maintained that in highly inflected languages, like
Greek, initial parsing decisions are determined by the interaction of
morphological and lexical cues rather than by universal parsing principles.
During the initial parse, discourse-level information is constrained by
lexical considerations, which indicates that the human sentence processor
is a multi-stage mechanism. The L2 data show that parsing preferences are
not totally determined by frequency records and that L2 sentence processing
is mainly guided by lexical information and less so by other sources of
information.
