The Processing of Underspecified Coherence Relations.
Spooren, Wilbert
Discourse Processes, v24 n1 p149-66 1997
Analyzes different strategies used by speakers/writers and hearers/readers to deal with underspecified coherence relations, phrased in terms of Horn's (1984) Q- and R- principle. Presents data from the psycholinguistic literature on the interpretation of underspecified relations and data from language-acquisition research suggesting that both speakers and hearers tend to be cooperative in using underspecified relations.
