    Anticipation is an essential ability for the human cognitive system to survive in its surrounding environment. The present article will review previous research on anticipatory processes in sentence processing (comprehension). I start by pointing out past research carried out with inadequate methods, then move on to reviewing recent research with relatively new, more appropriate methods, specifically, the so-called 'visual-world' eye-tracking paradigm, and neuropsychological techniques. I then discuss remaining unresolved issues, both methodological and theoretical.
