Effects of Textual and Cohesive Structure on Discourse Processing.
Hoover, Michael L.
Discourse Processes, v23 n2 p193-22 1997
Indicates a facilitation in undergraduate students' reading time for congruent text marking for both cohesion and textual structure that manifested itself at different points in the sentence. Suggests that readers are highly sensitive to coherence marking devices, and strictly local coherence models cannot completely account for what readers are doing as they read well-structured discourses.
