Karpenko-Seccombe, Tatyana (2016) Decoding time and place through cognitive analogy and mapping. In: 6th UK Cognitive Linguistics Conference, 19-22 July 2016, Bangor University. (Unpublished)

In this paper I argue that cognitive analysis can be successfully used to elucidate the process of decoding texts with intertextual references. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, cognitive analysis can elucidate the process of inferencing which is crucial for decoding intertextual references through analogy and mapping between different conceptual domains. Secondly, cognitive analysis can offer insights into the process of text comprehension by introducing fragments of personal and socio-cultural cognition into the mental model of the text.
