The aim of this project is to find out if Swedish speakers use one or two systems for gender agreement in language processing. There are currently two theoretical approaches: one claims that there is only one system for agreement and that that system is semantic, the other claims that there are two systems, one semantic and one syntactic. Our aim is to find out which of these approaches is the correct one.
