Wiki Version:
Thanks to those who came to our Zoom meeting! If you'd like to get in touch, feel free to leave a comment or email us! Authors: Shota Momma & Michael Wilson Abstract: We examine the optionality of English *that* complementizers in sentence production, and find that it is sensitive to non-local environments. In particular, *that* is produced less often selectively when the complementizer position is in the hierarchical movement path of a *wh*-argument or *wh*-adjunct (exp. 1), but not when it is merely in the linear movement path of a *wh*-word (exp. 2), and that when a *wh*-word crosses multiple clause boundaries, *that* production is most reduced in the most embedded clause (exp. 3). Taken together, these results show that speakers encode and maintain a detailed syntactic representation over time, such that they distinguish between clauses where a *wh*-word originated and ones where they did not.
