     On top of logical inference (reason), such psychological factors as attention, intention and emotion interplay as much in the processes of communication. The Distributed Grammar (a highly modular model of language) is therefore a complex view of language which emerged as the result of a multi-level investigation into the sequential (linear) arrangment of the constituents of linguistic utterances focusing on the fact that the sequential nature of language reflects the semantico-pragmatic overt (explicit, cf. explicature) and covert (default, cf. implicature) components of communicated information. The Distributed Grammar program is an integrating research framework for Grounding (para-information), Associative Semantics (ortho-information) and Attention Centering (meta-information) as representing the content of the communicative intention memory and its partial explicit expression in utterance.
