Abstract

What is the time-course of referential comprehension? How are information structural notions like givenness and topicality processed? In this talk, I will look at the contribution of semantic, prosodic and syntactic cues during the processing of direct and indirect anaphora in German. I present data from electrophysiology indicating that discourse processing proceeds in two discrete stages:
on the one hand, it requires linking with given information, and on the other hand, adding new information units and updating discourse representation structures.
