Essay on the social structure of prose, i.e. on the implicit and explicit information in the structure and content of a prose passage that designates, amongst other things, characteristics of the author and the intended listener of the passage. Such social information is said to affect the way in which a subject in a laboratory setting processes, stores and retrieves prose information.
