The Society for Text and Discourse

The Society for Text & Discourse is an international society of
researchers who investigate all aspects of discourse processing and
text analysis. The purpose of the Society is to consolidate research
in discourse processing and to enhance communication among researchers
in different disciplines.

Discourse Processes

Membership includes various discounts as well as the journal Discourse
Processes published by Lawrence Erlbaum Associates. This official
journal of the Society for Text and Discourse provides a forum for the
cross-fertilization of ideas from diverse disciplines that share a
common interest in discourse, be it prose comprehension and recall,
dialogue analysis, text grammar construction, computer simulation of
natural language, cross-cultural comparisons of communicative
competence, or related topics.

The Society will hold its Twelfth Annual Meeting at the Palmer House
Hotel in Chicago, IL, from Thursday through Sunday, June 27 - 30. This
