2. What is animacy?

  • A semantic variable; whether a word can act
  • A prosodic cue; how much the word lends itself to prosody
  • A lexical variable; whether a word can act
  • A morphological variable; how much a word can 'do'

3. In a constraint based framework, what is ambiguity resolution seen as?

  • A processing limitation
  • Incrementality
  • A constraint satisfaction process
  • A resource limitation

4. How does animacy affect the parse?

  • Makes a difference to the context of the garden path; evidence FOR a fully autonomous parser
  • Makes a difference to the size of the garden path; evidence FOR a fully autonomous parser
  • Makes a difference to the size of the garden path; evidence AGAINST a fully autonomous parser
  • Makes a difference to the context of the garden path; evidence AGAINST a fully autonomous parser

5. Where were the longer fixations in a study by Farzier & Rayner (1982)?

  • Disambiguating regions, more regressions to ambiguous material
  • Ambiguous regions, more regressions to disambiguating material
