Book description:

Researchers in the fields of linguistics, psychology, cognitive
science, and neuroscience have long been interested in the development
of a universal theory of how humans process language. Many believe
that the creation of such a theory could significantly assist in the
understanding of how the human brain works. For this reason, much
research has been performed on sentence processing in English and
other Indo-European languages. Yet many East Asian languages have
received relatively little attention. This book is the first of its
kind to discuss how native speakers of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean
process sentences in their native tongues. Although these three
languages share similar characteristics, this volume acknowledges and
discusses specific issues that are unique to each language. The
contributing authors investigate the effects of homophones on lexical
ambiguity in Chinese, the impact of word order in Japanese, and the
impact of prosody on structural ambiguity in Korean. The findings
presented have important implications for sentence processing and
cognitive processing models, and by extension contribute toward the
construction of a universal theory of human language processing.
