Abstract This study explored an assimilation effect in judging the grammaticality of sentences violating the subjacency condition. The target sentences included either a noun phrase (NP-extracted) or an adverbial phrase (AP-extracted), each extracted from a subordinate clause and placed in front of the sentences. Anchor sentences had a surface structure similar to the AP-extracted targets such that a preposed adverbial phrase could be associated both with the subordinate and the matrix verb. Twenty-eight speakers classified as field-dependent judged the two types oftarget sentences given together with anchors or no anchors. The assimilation as well as the contrast effect was found, albeit to a slight degree. The level of judged grammaticality of the anchors rather than surface structure similarity appeared to be more influential in producing the anchoring effects in the judgments of the grammaticality of sentences.

Abstract This study investigates the judgments of grammaticality of Japanese and English bitransitive sentences with a differing number of arguments. Japanese speakers exposed to Chomsky’s generative grammar (n = 30) and those not exposed (n = 28) were compared. This exposure was expected to facilitate a sentence− oriented judgment strategy that would direct speakers towards decreasing the grammaticality of the Japanese sentences lacking one or more arguments. Findings showed no effect in the judgments of Japanese sentences. However, in the judgments of the English sentences speakers exposed to generative grammar approximated to those made by native speakers of English. It was suggested that the exposure to generative grammar facilitated the sentence−oriented strategy in the judgments of English sentences, but it was not so effective as to weaken a discourse−oriented strategy used by Japanese speakers when they judged Japanese sentences.
