Graesser, Arthur C.; Kassler, Max A.; Kreuz, Roger J.; McLain-Allen, Bonnie
Cognitive Psychology, v35 n3 p246-301 Apr 1998
Two experiments involving 131 college students investigated whether readers could accurately incorporate unusual assumptions about time in the novel "Einstein's Dreams" (A. Lightman). A construction-integration model is proposed to explain the interactions found among literary expertise, reading time, and the typicality of test statements. (SLD)
