Word contexts appear to have a beneficial influence on the processing of expected completions but only minimal benefits for unexpected completions. Similarly, sentence contexts tend to benefit the processing of expected completions, but do so for unexpected completions under some highly circumscribed conditions only. Therefore, it seems that the scope of facilitation for upcoming words from both word and sentence contexts are fairly narrow indeed.
