Series Title: Studies in Theoretical Psycholinguistics
Description:

Language users access an array of information during the construction and
interpretation of utterances, including grammatical rules and situational
knowledge. The argument structure of verbs, which establishes the syntactic
and semantic relationships between arguments, plays a key role in this process.
This book reviews recent psycholinguistic and theoretical investigations into the
interplay between structural syntactic relations and role semantics. It focuses
on the interaction of case marking and word order with semantic prominence
features, such as animacy, addressing the interaction of these different sorts of
information from theoretical, time-insensitive and incremental perspectives or a
combination thereof. Taking a broad cross-linguistic perspective, this book
offers an interdisciplinary discussion of the interaction of case, word order and
prominence with argument structure, and their effects on argument realization
and interpretation in language.
