The Effects of Pragmatics and Discourse Style on Recognition Memory for Sentences.
Long, Debra L.
Discourse Processes, v17 n2 p213-34 Mar-Apr 1994
Suggests that two components of natural discourse (pragmatic information and knowledge about discourse style) play a role in memory for the surface form of sentences in discourse. Shows that recognition memory increased as a function of information about the speaker's positive and negative attitudes and that substantial verbatim memory was exhibited for evaluative and formulaic expressions.
