More Piecewise Structural Equation Modeling! This time of the collective implicature.

Great work by Ramón Padilla-Reyes, Melissa Nieves Rivera and Morgan Oates in understanding the role played by multiple dimensions of cognition in collective-distributive sentence interpretation. This is our second project using Piecewise Structural Equation Modeling, with help from SEM experts Jonathan Lefcheck and David Melamed.

See section 3 of our new article in Language Acquisition for our attempt at explaining how to use the statistic and why it requires dramatically less statistical power than does conventional structural equation modeling.

Also fun to think about combinatorics and sentence complexity, with help from my cousin, Charles Grinstead. Thank you, Charles!
