A Reconstruction Paradigm for the Experimental Analysis of Semiotic Factors in Cognitive Processing
Cognitive processing in psychology and semiotics are compared in relation to language processing and memory. Active reconstruction in memory is postulated, as well as the representation of whole messages as signs. The paradigm, then, is based on the study of active reconstruction of verbal messages from their semiotic representations in memory. Differences between original and reconstructed messages are used as dimension of empirical study in the paradigm. Research findings are cited in support of this approach.
