Language Comprehension and Production

(p.213) 10 Language Comprehension and Production
Mental Representations

Allan Paivio

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how the dual coding theory handles language comprehension and production. It treats language as a problem in its own right, with emphasis on more extended behavioral segments than words or phrases, and with particular attention to comprehension and production of such segments. It begins with a theoretical orientation to the topic and then turns to applications of the theory to the basic phenomena of comprehension and production, as well as special problems associated with figurative language.

Keywords:   dual coding theory, representation, language comprehension, language production, figurative language
