Neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies of grammatical-class differences suggest that nouns and verbs may be associated with different brain regions. The current functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study focused on auditory grammaticality judgements of two-word stimuli consisting of noun/verb ambiguous and unambiguous nouns and verbs preceded by either "the" or "to". The fMRI results showed effects of class ambiguity in the left inferior frontal gyrus, possibly due to greater… CONTINUE READING
