Contents:
The Lexical Basis of Sentence Processing; Editorial page; Title page; LCC data; Table of contents; Preface; Words, numbers and all that; The lexicon in Optimality Theory; Optimality-theoretic Lexical Functional Grammar; The lexicon and the laundromat; Semantics in the spin cycle; Connectionist and symbolist sentence processing; A computational model of the grammatical aspects of word recognition as supertagging; Incrementality and lexicalism; Modular architectures and statistical mechanisms; Encoding and storage in working memory during sentence comprehension.
Summary: Lexical effects on language processing are currently a major focus of attention in studies of sentence comprehension. This thematic collection provides a uniquely multi-faceted and integrated viewpoint on key aspects of lexicalist theories, drawing from the fields of theoretical linguistics, computational linguistics, and psycholinguistics. The focus of this stimulating volume is on a number of central topics: The discussion of foundational issues concerning the nature of the lexicon and its relationship to sentence understanding; the exploration of the relationship between syntactic and lexi.
