'This important collection of papers demonstrates the utility of experimental syntax by elucidating the debate about the nature and source of syntactic island effects concerning the interaction of the grammar and the processor, thereby providing an excellent introduction to a new avenue for syntactic research.' Robert Freidin, Princeton University
This volume takes an empirical approach to an important syntactic phenomenon – the 'island'. For the first time, leading linguists and psycholinguists set the topic within an empirical context. This book is ideal for students and researchers interested in cutting-edge experimental techniques in linguistics, psycholinguistics and psychology.
