      While Dutch welke ‘which’-questions are structurally ambiguous, number agreement cues can disambiguate them. Despite such agreement cues, children misinterpret object questions as subject questions (Metz et al. , ; Schouwenaars et al. ). We investigated if adding another cue, specifically, topicality in a discourse context, helps the interpretation of which-questions in two. Abstract. We compared the processing of verb-medial sentences in Basque. Syntactic analysis claims that all word orders other than SOV are derived in this language; therefore, verb medial sentences are expected to show signs of syntactic displacement and be equally complex to process.

This self-paced reading study explored how English and Dutch L2 learners of German process subject-object ambiguities in German and whether the location of the lexical verb influences on-line processing among L2 learners. Reading time results at the disambiguating region revealed a subject-first preference, regardless of the location of the lexical verb, for all three groups.

subject-object ambiguities in Dutch. 1 As will be explained in more detail in the next chapter, Dutch has a number of clause types in which the syntactic function of the NPs is at leastAuthor: Edith Kaan.

Various clause types in Dutch and German are at least temporarily ambiguous with respect to the order of subject and object. A number of previous studies regarding the processing of such subject-object ambiguities have reported a preference for a subject-object by:   Dutch ‘which’ clauses are at least locally ambiguous between a subject–object and an object–subject reading.

On the basis of syntax-based parsing strategies (e. the Active Filler Strategy, Frazier ), a subject–object preference is by: Havik et al.

Abstract. The processing of locally ambiguous wh-phrases has received much attention in the last years, and experimental results reported in the literature converge in at least one respect: if a clause-initial NP is locally ambiguous between a subject and an object interpretation, the human parser strongly prefers the.

Native speakers of both Dutch and German have been shown to have a preference for a subject. Hence, other mechanisms and sources of information must be involved in the interpretation of sentences with a (local) structural sub- ject-object ambiguity.

& Liszka, S., 30 Dec Article in Second Language Research. This chapter discusses the kinds of processes that are involved in the incremental processing of subject–object ambiguities in Dutch. In Dutch, the word order of verbs and their complements varies depending on the type of clause in which they appear.

The results of two self-paced reading experiments are reported, which investigated the online processing of subject-object ambiguities in Dutch relative clause constructions like Dat is de vrouw. subject-object preference is expected on discourse grounds: both subject-object and object-subject conditions impose the same restrictions on the context.

Hence, for the wh-questions only the syntactic bias for the subject-object reading should affect ambiguity resolution, yielding a weaker subject-object preference than in the declarative cases.
