Abstract

The idea that predictability influences production has been observed at multiple levels of linguistic structure – e.g., phonetics, morphology, and syntax. Evidence for the influence of predictability on reduction in speakers’ choice of reference, however, is mixed. Work in this domain typically targets the 3rd person pronoun and typically uses a referent’s rate of re-mention in a subsequent sentence as a measure of predictability.
