[Poster Presentation] Binding and Dependency Length in Gapless Relative Clauses
Hajime Ono, Yu Ikemoto (Kinki Univ.) TL2013-29
Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Previous studies on Japanese relative clauses suggested that prediction makes an effect on the processing cost for the relative clause head noun. Our study used a pronoun soko ‘there’ in the relative clause in order to control the influence of the relative clause prediction. The pronoun in the relative clause was bound by a universal quantifier, which appeared as a relative clause head. The relative clause head that binds the pronoun attached to the subject was read slower than that binds the pronoun attached to the object, suggesting that the previously observed preference for subject relative clause in Japanese could be largely due to the influence of prediction.
