Editorial Reviews


An ambitious and provocative new look at many of the classic issues in sentence processing. Townsend and Bever integrate a large body of past and current results in a novel 'constraints-first/syntax-last' model, while deftly addressing central debates in the cognitive sciences about the mental status of rules and constraints.

(Michael K. Tanenhaus, Professor of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, University of Rochester)

This monograph presents a comprehensive review of current models of sentence comprehension, set within a valuable historical perspective, and a new model that seeks to reconcile the major differences between theories in the field. Researchers and students will find it a valuable and provocative work.

(David Caplan, Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School)
