Narrative Comprehension: A Discourse Perspective

by

Write The First Customer Review

There has so far been relatively little research by cognitive linguists on the comprehension of narrative texts. This book draws on insights from discourse analysis and artificial intelligence to explore how readers construct and maintain mental representations of fictional characters and contexts, and goes on to consider the implications of cognitive modelling for grammatical theory and a literary-linguistic model of narrative text-types.
