The Measurement of Textual Coherence with Latent Semantic Analysis.
Foltz, Peter W.; Kintsch, Walter; Landauer, Thomas K
Discourse Processes, v25 n2-3 p285-307 1998
Illustrates use of Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) for predicting coherence through reanalyzing two studies that manipulated coherence of texts and assessed readers' comprehension. Finds that LSA predicts effects of text coherence on comprehension. Notes that LSA can be applied as an automated method that produces coherence predictions similar to propositional modeling. Describes applications for analyzing discourse structure. (SR)
