Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate whether or not ninth grade students in high school have the ability to comprehend garden-path sentences, and at the same time get an insight into how their unconscious knowledge of linguistic structure above the level of the word works. A part of a test previously used on undergraduate students at an American University was therefore used on four Swedish students at a local high school. The result data was analysed and the research questions was to some extent answered, but the investigation also showed that the study performed was to small too draw any general conclusions from.
