9780198238683: Narrative Comprehension: A Discourse Perspective (Oxford Linguistics)

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.

About the Author:

Catherine Emmott is at University of Glasgow.

Review:


"a major advance in narrative analysis, the book will be an invaluable resource for discourse analysts, cognitive scientists, and narrative theorists alike." --David Herman, North Carolina State University


"any future serious treatments of written narrative, and particularly of anaphora, will have to take this work into account." --Professor Wallace Chafe, University of California, Santa Barbara


"This is a book which a lot of people should read. It has relevant things to say to linguists and psychologists interested in text and discourse analysis, narratologists, stylisticians, literary theorists, reading theorists and those interested in the empirical study of literature and in the teaching of literacy skills." --Professor Mick Short, Lancaster University, Journal of Literary Semantics
