Language, Literacy, and Technology

By Richard Kern

"In this book, Richard Kern explores how technology matters to language and the ways in which we use it. Kern reveals how material, social and individual resources interact in the design of textual meaning, and how that interaction plays out across contexts of communication, different situations of technological mediation, and different moments in time."

Title: Mental Models and the Interpretation of Anaphora
Written By: Alan Garnham
URL: http://www.psypress.co.uk/
Series Title: Cognitive Psychology Series
Description:

This book presents an overview of the author's research on anaphor interpretation set within the context of the general literature on anaphora from the disciplines of psycholinguistics, philosophy, linguistics, and computational linguistics. The work is presented in the framework of the mental models theory of comprehension, and it is argued that the notion of a mental model is essential to the detailed description of the processes of anaphor resolution. Initial chapters clearly present the necessary background on mental models and anaphora for the author's subsequent discussion of the major strands of his own research on deep and surface anaphora, reference into anaphoric islands, the role of implicit causality in anaphor resolution, and the use of pronouns to refer to characters introduced by gender stereotyped role names. The book concludes with a summary of the central aspects of a mental models theory of anaphor interpretation. For details of how to order, please visit psypress.co.uk or psypress.com
