<p>Listeners rely on co-occurrence frequencies between verbs and syntactic structures—verb biases—to disambiguate sentences and listeners dynamically update their representations of verbs in the face of new evidence about verb-structure co-occurrence. Yet, little is known about the biological memory systems that support the use and dynamic updating of verb bias. We explore this question by testing individuals with deficits in declarative memory (amnesia), and age-matched healthy participants, in their on-line interpretation of syntactically ambiguous sentences. We find that patients and their age-matched counterparts use verb bias in on-line interpretation, however neither updated these biases in response to recent exposure.</p>
