Adjacency, Animacy, and Intensionality as Cues to Oral and Written Sentence Comprehension.
Scholes, Robert J.; Willis, Brenda J.
Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, v2 n1 p27-38 Apr 1990
Investigates three types of cues [semantic, syntactic (intensional), and adjacency] to subjects of verbs in English sentences. Finds that, when the adjacency strategy does not apply, even highly literate native speakers have great difficulty in correctly comprehending subject-verb correspondences. Discusses findings in context of the relationship between intensional linguistic processing and literacy. (RS)
