**Abstract:** Comprehenders incrementally predict the unfolding of the sentence based on different motivations - syntactic licensing, rapid semantic integration, or alignment with pragmatic preferences. Is predictive structure building different when it is motivated by syntactic vs. pragmatic considerations? We present a mixture-model analysis of previous results which provides support to the assumption that pragmatic and syntactic dependencies are predicted in similar rate but incur different reanalysis costs. In addition, in a new experiment we exhibit that the interpretation of a reanalyzed pragmatic dependency does not persist to the same degree as in syntactic dependencies. ---------- **Want to read more?** This study follows up on our recent paper: *The effects of syntactic pressures and pragmatic considerations on predictive dependency formation* Paper: Data&code:
