Recent work has emphasised the importance of thematic domains in sentence processing. Two questionnaire studies examined whether thematic domains influence attachment of relative clauses to complex NPs in Japanese. The results suggest that definitions of thematic domains should be revised to cover left-branching structures, but do not support a distinction between domains associated with clauses and adpositional phrases.
