Role of Rhetorical Structure in Text Comprehension.
Kintsch, Walter; Yarbrough, J. Craig
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n6 p828-34 Dec 1982
Subjects were better able to read essays in good rhetorical form with explicit structural cues than essays in bad form without cues and in deviant paragraph order. Differences depended upon whether the test evaluated macro- or microprocesses (global or local comprehension). Comprehension strategies involving rhetorical cues are discussed. (Author/CM)
