Identifying Variables in Prose.
Meyer, Bonnie J. F.
This paper identifies and describes three distinct variables on which prose passages can differ, from a linguistic point of view. Each of these variables relates to the way in which the content of prose is organized to convey meaning to the reader. The first variable is the position of information in a structure representing a passage's organization. The second variable deals with the pattern of organization of a passage. The third deals with the amount of signaling given by the author to help the reader use the passage's organization. It is suggested that these three variables, which tap different aspects of the organization of information in prose, will be valuable tools for investigating how people learn and remember information from prose.
