Summary:   Regarding query:

I have requested for some references on on-line processing studies dealt
with English articles and received helpful recommendations from several
scholars such as Francis Bond, John A. Hawkins, Evan Kidd, and Charles T.
Scott. I am grateful for their kind and valuable responses.

Below is the edited list of the references I have received.
From Francis Bond:

There is some discussion of articles in Emi Izumi's ''Automatic error
detection in the Japanese learners' English spoken data''

Book: ''Translating the Untranslatable
A solution to the Problem of Generating English Determiners''
, which
summarizes most of the relevant literature.
From John A. Hawkins:

See chapters 4.3 and 4.4 of 2004 Efficiency and Complexity in Grammars
book, Oxford University Press (which deals with processing considerations
in the evolution of definite articles in languages that have them).
From Charles T. Scott:

Quite a few years ago, Peter Master published an excellent article in the
TESOL QUARTERLY on the syntax and semantics of the English articles,
particularly the definite article.

From Evan Kidd:

Spivey-Knowlton, M., & Sedivy, J. (1995). Resolving attachment ambiguities
with multiple constraints. Cognition, 55, 227 - 267.

I would still be very much appreciate if anyone could direct me to any
studies particularly on on-line processing studies on English articles, for
example studies using the Moving Window Reading task and so on.
