Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingPaper in conference proceeding

Abstract

Swedish subordinate clauses introduced by 'att' are syntactically and semantically ambiguous when they do not contain clause level adverbials or topicalized elements. In this study, evidence that such clauses are disambiguated in their prosodic realization is presented.
