Referring to position by coordinates with the same origin). Likewise, Branigan, Pickering, and Cleland (2000) found that participants in an interactive card-sorting task tended to describe a card in the same grammatical structure that their partner had just used when describing a card to them. This tendency was especially strong when both prime and target descriptions employed the same verb. Hence, Pickering and Garrod (2004) argued that alignment at one level (here, the same verb) leads to more alignment at other levels (here, the same syntax).

However, the mechanism underlying the channels is that of comprehension-to-production and production-to-comprehension priming. Hence, during monologue (isolated production or comprehension), the alignment channels are present but do not engage in the communication process as such.
