Event conceptualisation and linguistic realisation: The impact of semantic and lexical factors on sentence production

Argument structure, the argument vs. adjunct distinction, and thematic roles are most relevant for the encoding of events, but there is little agreement on the definition of these concepts.

Structural priming experiments help to dissociate the predictions based on a strictly incremental model of sentence production from predictions made by a lexicalist account.
