Turkish 3rd person plural subjects normally appear with verbs that are unmarked for number. Following earlier findings which indicate that Turkish heritage speakers (HS) accept overt plural marking more readily compared to monolingually raised Turkish speakers, the present study investigates to… read more
Schlenter, Judith and Claudia Felser 2021 Chapter 3. Second language prediction ability across different linguistic domains: Evidence from GermanPrediction in Second Language Processing and Learning, Kaan, Edith and Theres Grüter (eds.), pp. 47–68 | Chapter
Previous research suggests that second language (L2) speakers can reliably use lexical-semantic cues for predictive processing but have difficulty using morphosyntactic ones. Here we report the results from a visual-world eye-tracking study that tested first language (L1) Russian/L2 German… read more
Felser, Claudia and Anna Jessen 2020 Brain responses elicited by implausible fillers and filled object gaps in GermanTypical and Impaired Processing in Morphosyntax, Torrens, Vincent (ed.), pp. 75–90 | Chapter
We report the results from two experiments on the processing of filler-gap dependencies in German using event-related potentials (ERPs). Our aim was to identify and isolate brain responses linked to semantic vs. syntactic integration processes. Using maximally parallel stimulus materials, we… read more
Lago, Sol, Martina Gracanin-Yuksek, Duygu Fatma Şafak, Orhan Demir, Bilal Kırkıcı and Claudia Felser 2019  Straight from the horse’s mouth : Agreement attraction effects with Turkish possessorsLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 9:3, pp. 398–426 | Article
We investigated the comprehension of subject-verb agreement in Turkish-German bilinguals using two tasks. The first task elicited speeded judgments to verb number violations in sentences that contained plural genitive modifiers. We addressed whether these modifiers elicited attraction errors,… read more
Boxell, Oliver, Claudia Felser and Ian Cunnings 2017 Antecedent contained deletions in native and non-native sentence processingLinguistic Approaches to Bilingualism 7:5, pp. 554–582 | Article
We report the results from an eye-movement monitoring study investigating native (L1) and non-native (L2) speakers’ real-time processing of antecedent-contained deletion (ACD), a type of verb phrase ellipsis in which the ellipsis gap forms part of its own antecedent. The resulting interpretation… read more
Cunnings, Ian, Claire Batterham, Claudia Felser and Harald Clahsen 2010 Constraints on L2 learners’ processing of wh-dependencies: Evidence from eye movementsResearch in Second Language Processing and Parsing, VanPatten, Bill and Jill Jegerski (eds.), pp. 87–110 | Article
Using the eye-movement monitoring technique, the present study examined whether wh-dependency formation is sensitive to island constraints in second language (L2) sentence comprehension, and whether the presence of an intervening relative clause island has any effects on learners’ ability to… read more
