Toward an Interactive Model of Reading. CHIP Technical Report No. 56.
Rumelhart, David E.
Reading is a process that bridges the distinction between perceptual and cognitive processes but the formalisms of the information processing approach to the study of reading apply most naturally either to models assuming a series of noninteracting stages of information processing or to a set of independent parallel processing units. This paper presents a formalism developed in parallel computation based on HEARSAY II and GSP and adapted for reading, accounting for those aspects of reading which appear puzzling in linear models. This formalism is capable of development into more detailed models. Also included are diagrams of the formalisms, as well as references. (DF)
