Paper: Language Without A Central Pushdown Stack

ACL ID C90-3012
Title Language Without A Central Pushdown Stack
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session Main Conference
Year 1990

We will attempt to show how human performance limitations on various types of syntactic embedding constructions in Germanic languages can be modelled in a relational network linguistic framework. After arguing against centralized data stores such as pushdown stacks and queues, we will demonstrate how interconnections among levels of linguistic structure can account for many of the psycholinguistic facts.
