Syntactic binding refers to combining words into larger structures. Using EEG, we investigated the neural processes involved in syntactic binding. Participants were auditorily presented two-word sentences (i.e. pronoun and pseudoverb such as 'I grush' and 'she grushes', for which syntactic binding can take place) and wordlists (i.e. two pseudoverbs such as 'pob grush' and 'pob grushes', for which no binding occurs). Comparing these two conditions, we targeted syntactic binding while minimising… CONTINUE READING
