Text, Topos, and Mental Models.
Jarvella, Robert J.; And Others
Discourse Processes, v20 n1 p1-28 Jul-Aug 1995
Investigates how readers use predication for the interpretation of referents in text and to develop a coherent model of the events described in text. Illustrates how two types of predication (scalar copredication and antipredication) induce readers to disambiguate the referents of definite noun phrases in essentially the opposite way, with copredication simpler and faster to comprehend than antipredication.
