Emmott and Narrative Comprehension Part 2

At our next meeting on Wednesday 19th March (3.15pm, LingLab, Rutherford College), we will be continuing our discussion of Emmott’s cognitive model of narrative comprehension alongside Relevance Theory.

Tony Bex has kindly pointed us in the direction of this paper on the subject, which will make useful preparatory reading.

Tony Bex (1996) Variety in Written English, Routledge; Chap. 6.


I think it will be useful to focus specifically on how Emmott’s approach differs from Relevance Theory…

Reshmi, please feel free to post more direct questions/issues for discussion here.
