Self Embedded Relative Clauses in a Corpus of German Newspaper Texts

  title={Self Embedded Relative Clauses in a Corpus of German Newspaper Texts},
  author={Christian Korthals},
The distribution of center self-embeddings and extrapositions in German is assumed to reflect a universal performance strategy of minimizing memory load during parsing. Self-embedded relative clauses of embedding depth 2 were semi-automatically analysed in a treebank of German newspaper texts. Clause length and especially extraposition distance are found as the main distinctive parameters between center embeddings and extrapositions.1
