    schema:description "The editor presents the latest research in the study of comprehension and discourse processes--lexically ambiguous words and how they are accessed. The research explores how people arrive at an appropriate meaning of what we read or hear in the presence of words with multiple meanings. Chapters address such issues as how the meaning selected for an ambiguous word is influenced by the context that precedes it, as well as how researchers can reconcile the outcomes of a variety of studies (lexical decision, relatedness decision, sensibility, eye-fixations) using an assortment of materials (pairs of words, pairs of sentences, sentences and words). Of particular interest are chapters that focus on studies of ambiguity resolution across distinct populations, such as individuals with dementia of the Alzheimer's type.
