    Research has shown that it requires less time to process information that is part of an objective causal relation describing states of affairs in the world, than information that is part of a subjective relation expressing a claim or conclusion and a supporting argument. Representing subjectivity seems to require extra cognitive operations. In Mental Spaces Theory the difference between these two relation types can be described in terms of an extra mental space in the discourse representation of subjective relations: representing (...)

  5. A Cognitive Account of Subjectivity Put to the Test: Using an Insertion Task to Investigate Mandarin Result Connectives.Wilbert P. M. S. Spooren, Ted J. M. Sanders, Roeland W. N. M. van Hout & Hongling Xiao - 2021 - Cognitive Linguistics 32 (4):671-702.
    This article aims to further test the cognitive claims of the so-called subjectivity account of causal events and their linguistic markers, causal connectives. We took Mandarin Chinese, a language that is typologically completely different from the usual western languages, as a case to provide evidence for this subjectivity account. Complementary to the commonly used corpora analyses, we employed crowdsourcing to tap native speakers’ intuitions about causal coherence, focusing on four result connectives kějiàn ‘therefore’, suǒyǐ ‘so’, yīncǐ ‘so/for this reason’ and (...)

    The Linguistic Marking of Coherence Relations.Jet Hoek, Sandrine Zufferey, Jacqueline Evers-Vermeul & Ted J. M. Sanders - 2018 - Pragmatics and Cognition 25 (2):276-309.
    Connectives and cue phrases are the most prototypical linguistic elements that signal coherence relations, but by limiting our attention to connectives, we are likely missing out on important other cues readers and listeners use when establishing coherence relations. However, defining the role of other types of linguistic elements in the signaling of coherence relations is not straightforward, and it is also not obvious why and how non-connective elements function as signals for coherence relations. In this paper, we aim to develop (...)
