I agree with Zwaan and Graesser (1993) that "there is no
empirical evidence that some inferences are automatically or
partially encoded in text comprehension." They believe I disagree
on the second point, about partial encoding, I clarify my stance.
constructionism, inference, mental models, minimalism,
reading, text comprehension.
