Inferencing is defined as 'the act of deriving logical conclusions
from premises known or assumed to be true', and it is one of the
most important processes necessary for successful comprehension
during reading. This volume features contributions by distinguished
researchers in cognitive psychology, educational psychology, and
neuroscience on topics central to our understanding of the
inferential process during reading. The chapters cover aspects of
inferencing that range from the fundamental bottom up processes
that form the basis for an inference to occur, to the more
strategic processes that transpire when a reader is engaged in
literary understanding of a text. Basic activation mechanisms,
word-level inferencing, methodological considerations, inference
validation, causal inferencing, emotion, development of inferences
processes as a skill, embodiment, contributions from neuroscience,
and applications to naturalistic text are all covered as well as
expository text, online learning materials, and literary immersion.
