CASE CHECKING AND THE HSPM II: THE ROLE OF WORKING MEMORY
- 282 Downloads
The experimental results of the last chapter have provided strong support for our claim that the grammar of Case is reflected in a direct and transparent way in the HSPM’s Case checking routines. In particular, these results have added to the already existing body of evidence showing that structural Case and lexical Case are treated differentely by the HSPM, in ways closely mirroring their status within the grammar. At the same time, these results remind us of one the major lessons learned in psycholinguistic investigations of human sentence processing: The grammar alone is only one part—albeit an important one—within a complete theory of the HSPM.
