Abstract
This paper reviews the modular, statistical model of human lexical category
disambiguation (SLCM) proposed by Corley and Crocker (2000). The SLCM is
distinct lexical category disambiguation mechanism within the human sentence
processor, which uses word-category frequencies and category bigram
frequencies for the initial resolution of category (part-of-speech) ambiguities.

findings in relatively diverse constructions. This paper presents the results of two
