ISAIJLS Volume 31, Number 3, ISSN 0020-4277
Two experiments examined the role of analogy in the development of a situation model of a target passage, specifically, whether an analogous source text could improve comprehension and inferencing about causal mechanisms in the target. Responses of analogy subjects were more likely to include given and inferred information that comprised the target causal mechanisms. (Contains 64 references.) (Author/AEF)
