Abstract / Description of output

We first consider the nature of syntactic reanalysis, paying particular attention to questions about whether and how it differs from the construction of an initial analysis, such as whether it is encapsulated or whether alternatives are considered in parallel or not. We then outline different strategies that the processor may use in reanalysis, and review the relevant evidence. We show that our experimental evidence is compatible with an encapsulated serial search strategy.
