Acronym:
SFB 833 Projekt B8
Title:
Position and interpretation: Syntactic, semantic and information structural restrictions on the cognitive processing of adjuncts.
Duration:
01/11/2011 to 30/06/2021
Abstract / short description:
The project investigates adjuncts at the syntax-semantics interface from a processing perspective. The goal for the last funding period is to establish an elaborate two-stage model of adjunct processing, which will constitute an important part of the model of semantic processing. We will focus on (i) crosslinguistic variation in head-modifier positions and its effect on incrementality, (ii) semantic modelling of position-dependent interpretation differences, and (iii) the role of context in the time course of processing adjuncts.
