On the Consequences of Meaning Selection: Perspectives on Resolving Lexical Ambiguity
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
On the Consequences of Meaning Selection presents the latest research in a relatively new area in the study of comprehension and discourse processes—lexically ambiguous words, how they are accessed, and how meaning is derived. Investigators describe the current state of knowledge and theory regarding the role that words play in comprehension.
This book will be a valuable resource to individuals concerned with the problems of cognitive deficits or changes associated with disease and aging as well as the more contemporary problem of getting computers to understand what we say and write. As a scholarly volume, this book will be particularly useful for researchers in comprehension and discourse processes.
