The Role of Knowledge in Discourse Comprehension: A Construction-Integration Model.
Kintsch, Walter
Psychological Review, v95 n2 p163-82 Apr 1988
A discourse comprehension model is developed in which the initial processing is bottom-up. Word meanings are activated, propositions are formed, and inferences and elaborations are produced, regardless of the discourse context. A network of interrelated items is created which can be integrated into a coherent structure. (SLD)
