Neural basis for sentence comprehension: Grammatical and short‐term memory components
Recruitment of left inferior frontal cortex was most clearly associated with sentences that featured both an object‐relative clause and a long antecedent‐gap linkage, suggesting that this region supports the cognitive resources required to maintain long‐distance syntactic dependencies during the comprehension of grammatically complex sentences.

Real-Time Processing Implications of Enriched Composition at the Syntax–Semantics Interface
An experiment is described assessing whether or not parsing of a string requiring coercion—in addition to syntactic composition—is more computationally costly than parsing a syntactically transparent counterpart, a string that provides for an interpretable representation via syntactic compositions alone.

The Critical Role of Group Studies in Neuropsychology: Comprehension Regularities in Broca's Aphasia
It is shown that the group's performance is stable, and well-delineated, despite intersubject variation whose source is now identified, and promotes studies of groups of brain-damaged patients as a central tool for the investigation of brain/behavior relations.
Complement Coercion: Distinguishing Between Type-Shifting and Pragmatic Inferencing.
From among the set of verbs that have been reported to exhibit complement coercion effects, it is hypothesized that the semantic difference between the two should result in differing processing profiles and evidence from an eye-tracking experiment supports this hypothesis.
Recruiting Comparative Crosslinguistic Evidence to Address Competing Accounts of Agrammatic Aphasia
This paper seeks to confront the Trace-Deletion Hypothesis (TDH) and one of its variants, the Double-Dependency Hypotheses (DDH), with discriminating, crosslinguistic data and indicates that on raising constructions both hypotheses are able to derive Spanish agrammatic data correctly.

The derivation of postverbal subjects: Evidence from agrammatic aphasia
The study reported in this paper appeals to data from agrammatic aphasia to confront two competing analyses of the derivation of postverbal subjects in languages which permit free inversion. In one…

Findings suggest a dissociation in the integration of information, in which semantic composition—even mandatory and automatic semantic composition)—takes time to develop after it is syntactically licensed to do so.
