psycholinguistic literature on comprehen- sion suggests that propositions are the basic units of meaning involved in comprehension and that the listener's ultimate goal is to determine the propositions which an utterance or speech event expresses (Clark and Clark 1977, Foss and Haikes 1978). But propositions are repre- sented indirectly in the surface structure of utterances.
