  • Salomon Rettig
Part of the Cognition and Language book series (CALS)

The question asked in this chapter is whether such information as the sex, age, and race of the participants in the previous discourse on the Levin-Chambers case (Chapter 4) can be determined by neutral observers from reading the discourse alone.
