Adjectives in a predictive context. Grand average ERPs elicited by the critical adjectives in a predictive context. Black lines represent the response to adjectives bearing an inflection that is consistent with the gender of the predicted noun; red lines represent responses to gender inconsistent adjectives. The ERPs are timelocked to the onset of the adjective, and are filtered (8 Hz high cut-off, 48 dB/oct) for presentation purposes only. Note that in this and all following figures, negative polarity is plotted upward.
