Monk, A.

Tatar et al. concluded that the designers of Cognoter had used an inappropriate model of communication, corresponding to the information transfer model depicted in Figure 1. The idea of a Cognoter item as a parcel of information that is constructed and then transmitted to the others may be good for individual brainstorming but simply does not fit in with what happens in the rest of the meeting when discussing what to do with the ideas generated. If one views language use as a closely coupled process of collaborative activity, as depicted in Figure 2, a very different picture emerges.

Clark’s book (1996) is an accessible and coherent statement of his whole theory. It has useful orienting summaries at the beginning and end of each chapter. Also, the first and last chapters provide accessible summaries of the whole book. He goes to some lengths to explain the scientific foundations of his work. Readers interested in this theory are strongly recommended to buy the book and get it straight from the horse’s mouth. Clark & Brennan (1991) is also very accessible. Other readers may wish to find out more about the research literature on electronically mediated communication.
