ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study by Arthur L. Blumenthal concerning the syntactic relationships of subject-predicate elements within a sentence in written communication. Blumenthal's research suggests that receivers do have syntactical boundaries. Readers remember groups of words as units and either recall all the unit or none. Locating the subject at the extreme left position of a sentence may be more efficient from a writing point of view, but it is not more efficient from a reading point of view.
