I have posted a query asking about studies done on semantics in definite
and indefinite English articles and have received very helpful information.
Thank you very much. In addition to that, I would like to ask at this time
if anyone could direct me to any studies done on processing of English
articles. I have read an article, entitled The Definite Article The as a
Cue to Map Thematic Information, written by Morton Ann Gernsbacher and
Rachel R. W. Robertson. The authors found out that readers interpret the
definite article the as a cue to map during discourse comprehension. In
this study, subjects who read sets of short sentences in which all the
articles were the definite
article the read those sentences significantly faster than subjects who
read sentences with indefinite articles. The subjects were also more likely
to integrate several sentences into one. The authors concluded that the
definite article the functions as a cue that maps coherent information.
I wonder if there are other studies that dealt with similar issues, namely
processing of English articles. Are there any studies done on the
processing of articles by using moving window reading task, particularly?
Thank you very much in advance for your help.
