Quantitative Discourse Psychology.
Graesser, Arthur C.; Swamer, Shane S.; Hu, Xiangen
Discourse Processes, v23 n3 p229-64 1997
Defines quantitative-discourse psychology. Illustrates its practice in five research projects, all of which examined naturalistic discourse, investigating: reading time; inference generation; construction of multiple agents (narrators, characters) in literary short stories; tutorial dialog; and dialog patterns in two-party conversations. Notes a major conceptual advance in each of these projects when an appropriate quantitative approach was adopted. (SR)
