Abstract or Description

This paper indicates how sentence processing depends upon the active construction of a PERSPECTIVE, which is the way a speaker or a listener becomes actively involved in a sentence. For this reason, the perspective is usually the starting point of the sentence. A number of linguistic and psycholinguistic studies are reviewed in the light of this approach to sentence processing.
