Two paper updates

Posted on

Just a quick note. It feels good to be able to announce that the overview paper on cross-linguistic production (written with Elisabeth Norcliffe) is now available online. Thanks for your feedback and all the references that were sent our way.

Also: I’ve finally written up the first study from my thesis. Well, a considerably updated version of it. Anyway, if you’re interested in Uniform Information Density and/or the syntactic reduction of complement clauses in spontaneous speech … have a look at the paper…  feedback is welcome. Oh, and did I mention that it is a corpus-based study ;).

Over and out (from lovely Berkeley, enjoying the LSA Summer Institute)

    Thanks to Robin Melnick for pointing out a rather confusing typo in my 2010 paper on complementizer mentioning (Jaeger, T.F. 2010. Redundancy and reduction: Speakers manage syntactic information density. Cognitive Psychology 61(1), 23-62).

    p. 35, second para, second sentence: “…with a matrix verb that never or rarely takes a **CC** complement (think, suppose, wish, figure, hope, and agree) were automatically marked as unambiguous.”

    This should read “…with a matrix verb that never or rarely takes a **NP** complement…”.
