  3. Perceptual Symbols in Language Comprehension: Can an Empirical Case Be Made?Rolf A. Zwaan, Robert A. Stanfield & Carol J. Madden - 1999 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 22 (4):636-637.
    Perceptual symbol systems form a theoretically plausible alternative to amodal symbol systems. At this point it is unclear whether there is any truly diagnostic empirical evidence to decide between these systems. We outline some possible avenues of research in the domain of language comprehension that might yield such evidence. Language comprehension will be an important arena for tests of the two types of symbol systems.

    Reading Between the Lines: The Activations of Background Knowledge During Tet Comprehension.Fernando Marmolejo-Ramos, María Rosa Elosúa de Juan, Pascal Gygax, Carol J. Madden & Santiago Mosquera Roa - 2009 - Pragmatics and Cognition 17 (1):77-107.
    This paper presents an overview of the activation of background knowledge during text comprehension. We first review the cognitive processes involved in the activation of inferences during text comprehension, stressing the interaction between text and reader in the construction of situation models. Second, we review evidence for embodied theories of cognition and discuss how this new framework can inform our understanding of the nature and role of background knowledge. We then review the neuropsychological data on the activation of background knowledge (...)
