## The authors say, "Welcome!" ## We hope you'll leave a comment or **[join our video chat][1]** during our scheduled poster session from 12-2pm EDT on Saturday 3/21 to discuss the poster.

Yet, over two naturalness-judgement studies, we demonstrate that late-stage processing does not reflect any secondary status for DD. These results are challenging for a hypothesis derived from work on appositive relative clauses (ARCs), that all peripheral discourse units are downweighted during late-stage processing. Further work must revisit whether and how the processor is sensitive to distinctions at the level of discourse structure. [1]:
