The main goal of this article is to develop an approach to free word order structures in German that reconciles the findings of two different lines of research: competition-based models that center around the interaction of factors like definite-ness, animacy, Case, and focus on the one hand, and optimality theoretic syntax with its violable and ranked(More)

INTRODUCTORY REMARKS Principled accounts of syntactic parsing like the garden path theory (Frazier 1978, see Frazier & Clifton 1996 for further references) have always presupposed that the heuristic strategies that characterize the behavior of the human parser in e.g. the case of a local ambiguity are nothing but descriptive characterizations of more(More)
In this paper, we investigate the performance of a Greek-English bilingual patient with Broca's aphasia and mild agrammatism on the placement of CP, MoodP, AspectP, and NegP-related adverbs, labeled specifier-type adverbs, and VP-related adverbs, labeled complement-type adverbs, by means of a constituent ordering task and a grammaticality judgment task.(More)
