Singer, Murray; Harkness, Dana; Stewart, Susan T.
Discourse Processes, v24 n2-3 p199-28 1997
Concludes that, whereas inference processing may be impeded by the relative lack of familiarity of the content of expository text, it is not strictly precluded. Indicates rather that inference processing in the comprehension of expository text is regulated by the information-processing constraints of the reading task and by the discourse and linguistic cues provided by the text.
