Abstract:

The use of semantic information in language comprehension is a matter of controversy. We briefly review Fraziers modular serial parser and Altmann and Steedmans conceptually driven parser. We propose a third mode, based on the work of Tanenhaus and Carlson 1988, Tanenhaus et al. 1987, that accounts for the conflicting results of our model, and, based on the behavior of the network, make a number of empirical predictions.
