The Representation of Experience for Case-Based Reasoning in Subjective Interpretation

Charles E. Martin

In Martin (1993), I argue for a new focus on subjective interpretation rather than meaning identification in natural language understanding. I characterize subjective interpretation as the integration of the reader’s past experience with the current state of mental processing. The role of a text is to identify relevant past experience; linguistic terms are associated with experience, not memory structures, and thus their interpretation is always reader-dependent.
