||What kinds of information do we use in our everyday language comprehension? Word order, general knowledge, intonation, emotion... and plausibility. If you hear a restaurant employee ask "Can I bake your order?" you know that the resulting interpretation is implausible. It would be much more plausible to ask "Can I take your order?"
In this study, we ask you to rate the plausibility of 48 sentences describing events taking place in a playroom setting. We hope to use these ratings as the basis for a more extensive exploration of our use of plausibility in language processing.
