Examines linguistic alternatives, which play a key role in various linguistic phenomena
Chapter 1. Introduction.- Chapter 2. Theoretical and empirical background.- Chapter 3. Long-term representation of the entire alternative set.- Chapter 4. The mechanisms of activation and competitive inhibition.- Chapter 5. What's included in the set of alternatives?.- Chapter 6. Contrastive pitch accents and focus particles.- Chapter 7. Conclusions.
This book presents a novel experimental approach to investigating the mental representation of linguistic alternatives. Combining theoretical and psycholinguistic questions concerning the nature of alternative sets, it sheds new light on the theory of focus and the cognitive mechanisms underlying the processing of alternatives. In a series of language comprehension experiments, the author shows that intonational focus and focus particles such as 'only' shape the representation of alternatives in a listener's mind in a fundamental way. This book is relevant to researchers interested in semantics, pragmatics, language processing and memory.
