This paper proposes a parser based fully upon the modeL(ca]led "CM parser" hereafter). In order to realize L~ile CM purser, we use Sigma-Pi- Units to implement ~ constraint of grammatical category order or word order, and a copy mechanism of suh~parse trees. Further more, we suppose there exist weak suppressive connection lisks between every pair of CM units. By these suppressive links, our CM parser explains why garden path sentences and/or deeply nested sentences are hard to recognize. Our CM parser also explains the preference principles for syntact:[cally ambJ guotls sentences.
