Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics

Processing and Producing Head-final Structures

Editors: Yamashita, Hiroko, Hirose, Yuki, Packard, Jerome (Eds.)

  • Directly supplements the research based on English, the head-initial language that has been the main target of research
  • Includes contributions by highly recognized researchers and collaborations by emerging scholars and established researchers
  • The variety of comparably structured languages (Chinese, German, Basque, Japanese, Korean) covered provide opportunities to examine phenomena cross-linguistically

About this book

This book is the first collection of studies on an important yet under-investigated linguistic phenomenon, the processing and production of head-final syntactic structures. Until now, the remarkable progress made in the field of human sentence processing had been achieved largely by investigating head-initial languages such as English. The goal of the present volume is to deepen our understanding by examining head-final languages and offering a comparison of those results to findings from head-initial languages. This book brings together cross-linguistic investigations of languages with prominent head-final structures such as Basque, Chinese, German, Japanese, Korean, and Hindi. It will inform readers of linguistics with both theoretical and experimental backgrounds, as it provides accounts of previous studies, offers experimentally-based theoretical discussions, and includes experimental stimuli in the original languages.
