Example text

The important point, however, is that in comprehending, such aspects are not as important as in understanding class inclusions. This results from the fact that action descriptions are normally used to describe episodes or to refer to facts in the outer world. Therefore, it is more important to construct such a situation than to analyze the features - be it of the concepts or the proposition as a whole. One could argue that understanding sentences that describe actions consists first of constructing propositions, which are then in turn used to construct a situation more resembling an image than a conceptual configuration (see Perrig & Kintsch, 1985).

The appropriate meaning is selected only after the LANGUAGE COMPREHENSION 45 sentence is interpreted by the central processor, which has access to contextual information. These conclusions, however, have been disconfirmed by Glucksberg, Kreuz, and Rho (1986). The cross-modal lexical decision task was shown to be sensitive to backward priming effects. When these effects were eliminated, only the contextually appropriate meaning of the ambiguous word was activated. Such results support an interactive model, since the linguistic processor is not insensitive to contextual information (Glucksberg, 1986).
