Qs: Discourse Surface, Text Structure, Coherence
Editor for this issue: Dan Parker
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

I am working on the effect, surface characteristics of discourse, like bold
or underlined typesetting, have on the text's coherence. Is, e.g. a bold
expression more likely to be referred to in the next utterance? And is it
therefore comparable with stressed expressions in spoken language?
My question is whether anyone on the List knows linguistic research that
deals with this problem. Many thanks!
