How Beliefs about a Partner's Goals Affect Referring in Goal-Discrepant Conversations.
Russell, Alex W.; Schober, Michael F.
Discourse Processes, v27 n1 p1-34 1999
Examines how interlocutors' beliefs about each other's goals affect conversational references, comparing pairs who were either informed or noninformed about the goal difference, or misinformed that goals were the same. Finds that misinformed and noninformed pairs overlooked clues that may have signaled the goal discrepancy, made conversational inferences their partners did not intend, and made misattributions about their partners.
