Abstract : This study investigates the time-course of perspective taking during reference resolution Keysar et al. 2000; Hanna et al., 2003; Barr, 2008, but here, instead of an utterance containing a direct reference to an object e.g. -click on the upside-down funnel-, speakers refer to objects using an utterance containing a negation e.g.-click on the one that is not the shiny cylinder-. Because listeners hear a negation, the process of recognizing the intended referent is free from the influence of bottom-up processes that can bias the interpretation toward one referent in the domain, like priming or some other automatic activation of speaker-specific word representations. These bottom-up processes have been proposed as the main mechanisms for early speaker-specific effects in interpreting referential expressions Brennan & Hanna, 2009; Brown-Schmidt, 2009.
