1. Animations from Syntactic Load

in /p/hlp/experiments/SyntacticLoad BR Description: BR These animations elicit sentences like: "Simon threw a spotted ball to the man with black hair." BR All video clips have one common character, named Simon. He stands in the middle when there are 2 other characters in the scene (recipient contrast) and on the left or right when there is only one other character. Simon does ditransitive actions such as: BR

Simon also does transitive actions such as:

These can be found under the "fillers" folder on the server. BR The animations come in sets of 4. All of the animations in a set involve the same characters and objects. The conditions are set up as follows: BR
