Empirical Methods in Discourse: Limits and Prospects

Richmond H. Thomason and Pamela W. Jordan

We claim that the methods used in approaches to discourse all display in rather acute form the gap between theory and evidence that is common in many areas of cognitive science. We propose enhancing the existing approaches with a simulation-based approach combining computational work in generation and interpretation, and discuss some of the issues in the design of a simulation architecture.
