Implicit prosodic priming and autistic traits in relative clause attachment

Sun-Ah Jun, Jason Bishop


Using the structural priming paradigm, the present study explores predictions made by the Implicit Prosody Hypothesis (Fodor 1998) by testing whether an implicit prosodic boundary generated from a silently read sentence influences attachment preference for a novel, subsequently read sentence. Results indicate that such priming does occur, although the patterns are highly dependent on individual differences in listeners’ “autistic” traits.
