The first-ever investigation of sentence processing in Hindi, Working
Memory in Sentence Comprehension studies the predictions of three
existing, wide-coverage sentence processing models. In experiments
that apply these models to Hindi, Shravan Vasishth develops a new
sentence processing model that builds on existing theories and
overcomes their empirical problems. Advancing the understanding of
human parsing processes, this book is a landmark in cross-linguistic
research, presenting a challenging set of sentence processing facts
that will impact future theories.
