Cognitive Psychology Exam 4

Question:
Describe the Interactionist Approach to parsing.
Answer:
In the Interactionist Approach to parsing, semantics come into play early as the sentence is being read. Parsing is influenced both by the meaning of words and by environmental setting. For example:
"The spy saw the man with the binoculars."
--2 interpretations. parsing determines how sentence is read.
"The bird saw the man with the binoculars."
--only 1 interpretation usually made, because we know that birds do not use binoculars.
