Feel free to join my Zoom meeting for a live Q&A during the poster session, or leave any questions/comments on my osf page! You can also reach me at valeriel@live.unc.edu **Links to Referenced Posters:** [Zerkle & Arnold 2019][1], [Langlois et al. 2019][2] Theoretical models suggest that pronoun comprehension is influenced by prediction, however this has not been directly tested. In four experiments, we investigated this by directly comparing measures of comprehension and prediction in contexts constrained by transfer verbs (*Ana threw the ball to Liz, she…*) and social cues (e.g. gaze/point). Though results showed effects of both verbtype and gaze/point, there was a strong bias towards assigning the pronoun to the subject during comprehension, but not for prediction. This suggests that prediction explains both effects of the linguistic context and social gestures on comprehension, but does not explain the subject bias.
