Intertextuality in reading – namely the way in which written texts refer to other texts – has recently attracted attention in the field of linguistics and related disciplines. This book offers a unique look at the operation of intertextuality in real-world texts and the role of readers’ cognitive processes in responding to intertextuality.
The first part of the book presents innovative research into how intertextuality operates within a corpus of authentic texts. It then draws on that analysis to propose a comprehensive framework by means of which types of intertextual reference in texts can be classified and explained. The second part provides a rare example of an empirical research study into readers’ cognitive processes as they encounter intertextuality.
Stephen Bax is Professor in Applied Linguistics at CRELLA, the Centre for Research in Language, Learning and Assessment, at the University of Bedfordshire, UK. His research encompasses reading, discourse analysis, the use of eye-tracking to research reading processes, and the use of computer technologies in language education.
