Predictive Analysis in Sentence Comprehension: A Computer Simulation Model for Surface Structure Parsing

Though numerous models have been proposed by linguists and computer scientists for the parsing of natural language, Kimball (1973) has outlined one of the few that takes into account the operational limitations of the human perceiver. His predictive analysis model is intuitively appealing and is supported by empirical research (e.g. Whaley, 1979). This… CONTINUE READING
