Syntax, semantics and garden-paths.
In A. Ellis (Ed.), Progress in the Psychology of Language, Vol. 3 (pp.233-252). London: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates.

This chapter examines serial and interactive accounts of the relation between syntatic and semantic processing. Observation of garden-path phenomena suggest that the most powerful form of interactive model can be rejected. However, strictly serial models face similar problems. The data seem best explained by allowing some minimal degree of interaction between syntatic and semantic processing stages.
