    How Cognitive Load Influences Speakers' Choice of Referring Expressions.Jorrig Vogels, Emiel Krahmer & Alfons Maes - 2015 - Cognitive Science 39 (6):1396-1418.
    We report on two experiments investigating the effect of an increased cognitive load for speakers on the choice of referring expressions. Speakers produced story continuations to addressees, in which they referred to characters that were either salient or non-salient in the discourse. In Experiment 1, referents that were salient for the speaker were non-salient for the addressee, and vice versa. In Experiment 2, all discourse information was shared between speaker and addressee. Cognitive load was manipulated by the presence or absence (...)

    Different but the Same: Mental Representations of Negated Similes.Lisanne van Weelden, Joost Schilperoord & Alfons Maes - 2017 - Metaphor and Symbol 32 (1):19-29.
    When people comprehend language, they mentally represent object shape. Previous research has shown that objects that are mentioned in a simile construction are represented as similarly shaped. The present study examined object shape in mental representations of negated similes. In our experiment participants read negated similes or control sentences without a comparison structure. After having read the sentence, they judged whether two presented objects, which were either similarly or dissimilarly shaped, were previously mentioned. Our findings showed that for the negated (...)

    Evidence for the Role of Shape in Mental Representations of Similes.Lisanne Weelden, Joost Schilperoord & Alfons Maes - 2014 - Cognitive Science 38 (2):303-321.
    People mentally represent the shapes of objects. For instance, the mental representation of an eagle is different when one thinks about a flying or resting eagle. This study examined the role of shape in mental representations of similes (i.e., metaphoric comparisons). We tested the prediction that when people process a simile they will mentally represent the entities of the comparison as having a similar shape. We conducted two experiments in which participants read sentences that either did (experimental sentences) or did (...)

    The Interpretation and Representation of Coreferential Lexical NPs in Expository Texts.Alfons A. Maes - 1990 - Journal of Semantics 7 (2):143-174.
    The central topic of this article is the relationship between coreferential, non-identical, lexical NPs in texts (so-called NPi-NPi'-pairs). The main question in this article is which interpretation and representation must be attributed to the relationship between NPi and NPi' if they are to justify the (referential, cohesive and informative) functions and the adequacy of NPi' in texts. The answer has been given in terms of text relations and text intentions. It has been argued that the adequacy of NPi-NPi'-pairs cannot simply (...)
