Abstract / Description of output

The authors' claim that analogical reasoning is the product of relational priming is compatible with language processing work that emphasizes the role of low-level automatic processes in the alignment of situation models in dialogue. However, their model ignores recent behavioral evidence demonstrating a ``lexical boost'' effect on relational priming, We discuss implications of these data.
