In a self-paced reading study on German sluicing, Paape (2015) found that antecedents that had been reanalyzed (i.e., garden-path antecedents) led to reduced reading times at the ellipsis site. Adopting the parsing framework of Lewis & Vasishth (2005), Paape suggests that ellipsis antecedents are stored in working memory as chunks. Reanalysis increases a chunk's activation level, making it easier to retrieve.
