Complexity effects are found in all relative-clause sentence forms

  • Glenda Andrews (a1) and Graeme S. Halford (a2)
Abstract

We argue that if a different definition of sentence complexity is adopted and processing capacity is assessed in a way that is consistent with that definition, then the Caplan & Waters distinction between interpretive versus postinterpretive processing is unnecessary insofar that it applies to the thematic role assignment in relative-clause sentences.
