Preliminary data haveshowed a stronger preference for high attachment (HA) in PR-context than in context of genuine RC; fasterresponse times for PR than RC; higher error rates for low attachment (LA) than HA in PR-context; fasterresponse times for HA than LA in PR context higher response times in the condition in which N2-singularintervened between N1-singular and the RC.
