Issues in Implementing Three-Level Semantics with ACT-R

Abstract

Three-level semantics is a cognitive theory of how readers construct meaning from text. It incorporates concepts like conceptual schemata and activation spreading that are suited to implementation on a cognitive architecture. After summarizing the structure of the theory, we point out critical aspects of its implementation with ACT-R that are, besides the adaptation of the theory, expected in gathering empirically valid cognitive representations and activation values.
