  title={Memory structures that subserve sentence comprehension},
  author={Brian McElree and Stephani Foraker and Lisbeth Dyer},
Measures of the speed and accuracy of processing sentences with nonadjacent dependencies derived from the response-signal speed-accuracy tradeoff procedure were used to examine the nature of the memory system that underlies sentence comprehension. Three experiments with different sentence structures demonstrated that the accuracy of processing a dependency decreased as more material was interpolated between nonadjacent constituents. However, processing speed was unaffected by the amount of… CONTINUE READING
