Empty Categories in Sentence Processing (Linguistik Artuell/Linguistics Today)

 
21

The work reported in this book came about as a result of the realization that the issue of the role of syntactic gaps in processing was unresolved. It is surprising that this should be the case, since there are few fields of study which seem to allow experimental approaches to produce answers to syntactic questions, and these few are generally investigated with great zeal. Gap processing shows the potential to be such a field, and it too had been very popular in the late eighties and the first half of the nineties.
