A sentence processing model is presented, based on abductive and deductive inference. We show that the model makes correct predictions for an array of data involving Dutch, German, Japanese, and Hindi center-embedding constructions. It has comparable or better empirical coverage with respect to several other theories of sentence processing, and can be integrated into an existing wide-coverage model, Lewis’ Interference and Confusability Theory, to obtain an integrated theory of working memory constraints on human language processing.
