Assigning Information to Modalities: Comparing Graphical Treatments of the Syllogism

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The goal of a cognitive theory of modality assignment is to give a general account of the cognitive effects of assigning information to different modalities. This is an ambitious goal, some might say too ambitious, but without some general framework, the multi-disciplinary effort which will undoubtedly be necessary for progress is likely to remain scattered and unrecognised. A more modest aim of this paper is to illustrate how at least the disparate techniques of semantic analysis and experimental psychology are implicated in the development of a general theory.
