Book Information


Title: Coherence in Spontaneous Text
Edited By: Morton Ann Gernsbacher
T. Givón
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language, 31

The main theme running through this volume is that coherence is a mental phenomenon rather than a property of the spoken or written text, or of the social situation. Most of the papers in this volume were originally presented at the Symposium on Coherence in Spontaneous Text, held at the University of Oregon in the spring of 1992.
