PARODI, Giovanni. The Communicability Theory: Notes for an integral conception of written text comprehension . Rev. signos [online]. 2011, vol.44, n.76, pp.145-167. ISSN 0718-0934.

In this article the theoretical framework for a written comprehension theory, named the Communicability Theory, is presented. This theoretical conception is not a totally new one; it is based on previous theoretical reflections and empirical findings. Now it is further elaborated on, some aspects are gone into more detail, and it is named for the first time in a unique way. This theory is summed up by means of a founding principle (the ‘accreditability of the comprehended’) and three main assumptions (the ‘situated cognition assumption’, the ‘interactivity assumption’, and the ‘socioconstructivity assumption’), which in turn are elaborated in ten more specific assumptions.

Keywords : Communicability Theory; written text comprehension.
