This chapter begins with a discussion of the theoretical foundations of Text World Theory. Text World Theory is a model of human language processing, which is based on the notions of mental representation found in cognitive psychology and which shares the experientialist principles of cognitive linguistics. The chapter then considers what Text World Theory means in practical terms and what sets it apart from other cognitive-linguistic frameworks. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
