This paper addresses these research questions: (1) What are the main ideas presented in the published articles (2005–2020) on structural ambiguity resolution in language processing? (2) What are the main venues for unveiling research on structural ambiguity resolution in language processing? For that, a systematic review is performed, which reports on the eight most relevant studies. It is found the investigations into the topic of interest are conducted across multidisciplinary areas and primarily in the European institutions and the US. This research is circulated in journals, which are peer-reviewed and indexed by Scopus, Web of Science, and other databases. The other major finding is that psychophysical tests are more popular in the field, and reasons for that are explained. The polarity of results on syntactic disambiguation leaves room for much to be discovered. Copyright © 2020 Ural Federal University.
