Brady Publishes Dissertation on Predicted Verb Subcategorization

Dr. Jill Brady, assistant professor in the speech-language pathology program in the Department of Special Education, published a book titled Inter-sentential Influences on Predicted Verb Subcategorization.

This work, based on her dissertation research conducted at the University of Pittsburgh, was an investigation of the potential discourse-level influences on the prediction for upcoming verb subcategorizations—the obligatory and optional upcoming structures associated with the verb. Per-phoneme reading times across the target region were found to be significantly faster following coherent (vs. incoherent) contexts, but syntactic priming did not influence reading times. The publication citation is as follows:
