This book brings together linguistics and psycholinguistics. Text
representation is considered a cognitive entity: a mental construct
that plays a crucial role in both text production and text
understanding. The focus is on referential and relational coherence
and the role of linguistic characteristics as processing instructions
from a text linguistic and discourse psychology point of
view. Consequently, this book presents various research methodologies:
linguistic analysis, text analysis, corpus linguistics, computational
linguistics, argumentation analysis, and the experimental
psycholinguistic study of text processing. The authors compare, test,
and evaluate linguistic and processing theories of text

A state of the art volume in an emerging field of interest, located at
the very heart of our communicative behavior: the study of text and
text representation.
