Abstract

A formal sentence processing system is proposed which simulates different eventrelated potential (ERP) elicitation between sentences with and without unambiguous case marking. The electroencephalographical data are based on German subordinate clauses and Japanese sentences. As a formal framework we adopt Dynamic Syntax (Kempson et al. 2001), which enables incremental update of information by underspecifying tree information. This is augmented with default syntactic and semantic specifications which reflect shallow but efficient human sentence processing.
