<p class="p1">This paper investigates the processing of sentence-internal same with <span style="font-size: 10px;">three licensors (each, all and the) in two orders: licensor+same (surface scope) and </span><span style="font-size: 10px;">same+licensor (inverse scope). Our study shows that (i) there is no effect of surface </span><span style="font-size: 10px;">vs. inverse scope, which we take as an argument for a model-oriented view of the </span><span style="font-size: 10px;">processing cost of
