The Structure and Use of Language, Panel 2; Conference on Studies in Reading (Washington, D.C., August, 1974).
Smith, Marshall S., Ed.
The problem of this conference panel was to determine the interaction between the structural properties of text and the cognitive processes involved in comprehension. This panel report contains sections on the organization of the message in the communication system, the information readers derive from a message and how well they derive it, the process of going from sound (or print) to meaning, knowledge growth and use, and bilingualism. The last section consists of models of the process of extracting meaning from discourse, including models of language understanding and computer models of language acquisition. Lists of priorities and recommendations and of references are included. (JM)
