Figures 1–3, repeated from the main article (pp. 251–52), are given here in color, with the accompanying explanatory text.

Figures 1, 2, and 3 visualize all observed effects for each gender. Figure 1 illustrates the ERP effects that can be detected with the processing of feminine noun phrases; here the correct marker is /e/, color coded in black, and /n/ and /s/ are the incorrect markers, color coded in red and green, respectively.

Figure 2 documents the ERP effects showing up with the processing of neuter noun phrases. The correct marker is /s/ (color coded in black); the incorrect markers are /n/ (color coded in red) and /e/ (color coded in green). Note the diverging red and green wave forms in the left-anterior area (e.g. at FC5), which are important later in the article.
