Title: Text Representation. Linguistic and psycholinguistic aspects
Edited By: Ted Sanders
Joost Schilperoord
Wilbert Spooren
Series Title: Human Cognitive Processing 8
Description:

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 representation.

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.
