Sample text

We can assign voices to characters on a sentence by sentence basis if we are asked to do that (at least to some degree, according to this research, though it can be problematic). But is that what readers naturally do? Or better, to avoid difficult constructs like ‘real/ ordinary readers’ and ‘natural reading’, under what conditions of reading do readers do that? Is it, for example, (my own hypothesis) a common strategy of less committed readers to simplify processing to get through all those damned pages of a classic novel?

Another way to express this which seems to me more faithfully to report her findings is that more experienced readers ‘hear’ more possibilities and do not close down interpretations as readily. ‘Dual voicing’ is too reductive a notion and too misleading a label to express the openness we are shown through this research. The voicing perceived (if that is what it is) is multiple, indeed often quantitatively undecidable. The findings exceed the experimentalist’s model. It is the value of this piece of research, but also a source of unease with it.
